Sustained and inclusive economic growth is an essential requisite for poverty eradication and sustainable development. Productive infrastructure, access toand new technologies, and a stable macroeconomic environment are some of the most important determinants of long-term growth.

However, these same areas, when not properly managed, could also become obstacles for development. The SDG indicators allow countries to monitor these areas and choose the right policies to achieve high economic growth in a sustained and environmentally friendly manner.
