“Development” refers to the growth or expansion of something. You can talk about the growth of an industry or business. For example you could ask an entrepreneur, “What are your plans for the development of your company?” Or the government might talk about “economic development.”
“Development” can also refer to the process of making a design better and more advanced. For example, “My company is spending $1m on research and development to get the product on the market as soon as possible.”
And a development can also be used to describe an event or an incident which has happened recently, and is likely to have an impact on the present situation. For example:
The police said there had been a significant development in the case.
Let’s watch the news, I want to see the latest developments about the situation in Moscow.
What do you think the developments will mean for me?
