Competitiveness and Connectivity: Integrating Lagging Regions in Global Markets
In recent decades, as integration of global trade and investment has accelerated, many countries—both developing and developed—have experienced widening disparities of output and income across regions within their borders.

This note discusses the role of trade integration in shaping and addressing the challenges of lagging regions.
