Growth and Development are two interrelated but distinct concepts in economics.

Economic growth refers to an increase in a country's production of goods and services, typically measured by its gross domestic product (GDP) or gross national product (GNP). It is typically viewed as a positive development, as it leads to higher standards of living, increased employment opportunities, and greater economic prosperity.

Economic development, on the other hand, is a broader concept that encompasses not only economic growth but also improvements in other dimensions of well-being, such as health, education, and income distribution. It is concerned with the structural changes in an economy, such as the shift from an agricultural to an industrial economy, and the transformation of an economy from a low-income to a high-income one.

Both growth and development are important concepts in economics, as they help to explain the processes of economic change and to evaluate the performance of economies over time. They are also central to policy discussions, as policymakers seek to promote economic growth and development in their countries through various policy instruments, such as fiscal policy, monetary policy, and trade policy.

Overall, growth and development are central to the study of economics, as they help to explain the forces that shape the economic landscape and to determine the well-being of individuals, businesses, and societies.
