The importance of evidence for successful economic reform
AbstractEvidence is a vital input to the policymaking process.

Evidence demonstrates to the community the costs and benefits that can be expected from policy reform. Sound evidence of the net benefits of reform is crucial in the successful implementation of any reform program.
