Brazil, China, Germany and Russia's Industrial Policies:

Useful Models? Sustainable Success?

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) hosts a meeting to examine the policies that stimulate production and innovation in countries including Brazil, China, Germany and Russia. The meeting assesses the competitive impact of such policies in these countries and in the global economy as a whole. We also looked at particular policy approaches and what they signal about the role of the market in driving new growth, as well as the overall global trend in economic development and growth.

The panel assessed the following questions:

  • What is the competitive environment in Brazil, China, Germany and Russia today and how has it evolved?
  • What are their policy approaches for stimulating manufacturing?
  • How is the policymaking environment responding to perceived successes and failures?
