Abstract: While economic growth and productivity growth have been declining in the Asia-Pacific region, which is worrying as both are critical for development, especially if the region wants to shift to a development model that is driven more by domestic demand rather than excessive reliance on exports, the Sustainable Development Goals provide a critical entry point to strengthening productivity and thus economic growth. Indeed, while strengthening productivity will contribute to the success of a number of the Sustainable Development Goals, investing in their achievement will also nurture productivity growth, creating a virtuous cycle between sustainable development, productivity and economic growth.
