The Inclusive Growth virtual course deepened my understanding of inclusive growth, expanding my knowledge in using the appropriate analytical tools to examine measures and policies that might have an impact on issues that are central, especially in times of high uncertainty, as inequality and job prospects. Through discussions of country experiences, the course offered responses related to the difficulties in implementing policies that target inclusive growth, as well as the strategies to be followed.

The Virtual Course on Inclusive Growth is a very comprehensive and useful training that provides its participants with both theoretical and practical knowledge on fairly distributed economic growth. It covers a wide array of topics from different kinds of measurement of poverty and inequality to various macroeconomic policies that can affect growth. I highly appreciated a great ambiance during the whole course that encouraged an active participation, and the extensive knowledge and hands-on experience of lecturers. Ms. Iwona Janczyk Narodowy Bank Polski/National Bank of Poland Virtual Course on Inclusive Growth, August 31- September , 2020.
I am of the opinion that the most efficient way of contributing positively to policy-making decisions is to have practical knowledge of a society combined with scientific data on governance, economics, and politics. Every policymaker periodically should participate in such theoretical courses to refresh their mindset in order to come up with effective policies backed up with scientific data and theories. This is exactly what I think about the course on Inclusive Growth organized by JVI and IMF Institute for Capacity Development. Despite being held in a virtual environment, the course has helped me look at problems such as poverty, inequality, financial instability and climate change from various perspectives, and I am very grateful to organizers and lecturers for this opportunity.
