Nous utilisons une base de données transversales de récente construction pour examiner s'il existe des variations régionales et sectorielles dans la relation entre la pauvreté et la croissance économique. Nous trouvons que la relation entre pauvreté et croissance est plus forte en Asie occidentale et que cette relation dépend surtout de la croissance dans le secteur industriel. Par contre, la croissance industrielle n'a guère d'impact positif sur la réduction de la pauvreté dans les autres régions. Ces résultats sont conformes à l'idée que le succès dans la réduction de la pauvreté en Asie occidentale est dûà l'ouverture et l'orientation vers le marché de cette région. Par conséquent on observe une croissance d'une industrie à forte intensité de main-d'oeuvre qui déclenchait une croissance rapide de l'emploi et la réduction de la pauvreté.
