With a time horizon that is medium to long-term, this brief provides broad directions for policy and institutional reforms that would help revive growth in the ADEs. Given the pronounced diversity of the ADEs, specific directions are called for in each economy. However, it is not possible to address all the specificities here. The brief identifies emerging domestic constraints, examines the challenges and opportunities resulting from globalization, sketches a broad reform agenda and concludes with a sequencing of the reforms in the different subregions.
