The Global Government Forum have now published the full report, comprising five chapters - one for each of the event's main sessions:

The first part covered the presentation on the global economic outlook, and the challenges around rising inequality. The second part explored how governments can better track the impact of spending, and use that data to improve policies and services. The third part examined the role of finance departments in digital transformation. The fourth part focused on the challenge of weak productivity growth, examining its causes, consequences and cures. And the fifth part covered the need to take preventative action to protect people and public finances from environmental, social and economic disturbance.
