The study is built around two main sections. The first analyzes the need for an energy reform to spur innovation, investment, and economic growth. After identifying the objectives of the reform from IMCO’s perspective, the report clearly identifies the policy changes that such reform would entail.  The second section is a statistical analysis of the hydrocarbon sector of the world’s principal economies.
