For twelve years, the OECD Forum has gathered world leaders, government ministers, CEOs, NGOs, academia and trade unions to debate the most pressing policy issues of the day. This year the OECD Forum will take place on 28-29-May 2013.
We are now into the fifth year of the greatest economic crisis of our lifetimes, 200 million people around the world are unemployed, and we are faced with increasing inequalities in advanced and many emerging economies. Many countries are under immense pressure to put their public finances back on a sustainable footing, yet at the same time investment must be made to generate confidence and kick start growth. It is essential that growth becomes more inclusive and sustainable.
Building on outcomes of Forum 2012, Forum 2013 will be organised around three key themes at the heart of the debate on how to achieve a sustainable future: promoting inclusive growth and addressing inequalities, rebuilding trust in the system, and fostering sustainability.
