Economic Growth and Trade

Creating cross-sector solutions that lead to thriving, diversified economies.

We bring the public and private sectors together in partnership to advance sustained economic growth.

Through partnerships, companies and the public sector invest in robust value chains and stimulate private sector development that impact growth in emerging markets in three ways:

Private Sector Growth and Investment. We work with clients and investors in all sectors to overcome the obstacles to private sector growth and diversification. Together with our clients, we open new markets and accelerate growth

Trade and Competitiveness. We work directly with major multinationals, investors, and governments to foster positive business-enabling environments; promote investment, regulatory reform and market systems development; and advance digital engagement and women’s economic participation. 

Workforce Development. Resonance helps clients create workforce development strategies that address the needs of workers, companies, and the marketplace. We also look ahead to help companies and communities anticipate and capitalize on tomorrow’s opportunities.
