    Global Forum on Transparency & Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes: Speech by A. Gurría

    "We have to transition to more transparent, multilateral mechanisms. Thanks to your hard work, taxation is finally catching up with globalisation, making it more redistributive, harnessing its potential for social progress and justice, making people’s lives better. People sometimes forget that this is what taxation, indeed what economics is all about.", said the OECD Secretary-General at the Global Forum.

    Observações de Angel Gurría - Lançamento do Relatório Económico de Portugal

    Em Junho, Portugal saiu desse programa e neste momento prevemos um crescimento positivo, de cerca de 0,8%, para o ano de 2014, com maiores taxas de crescimento nos anos subsequentes. O desemprego, embora ainda seja elevado, tem vindo a diminuir há mais de um ano. Nos 13,9%, a taxa de desemprego é menor do que o pico de 17,5% que registou no início de 2013.

    Remarks by Angel Gurría - Launch of the 2014 Economic Survey of Portugal

    Portugal is recovering, with important reforms now bearing fruit. Fiscal consolidation has made Portugal’s public finances stronger.

    APEC economies are faring relatively well and China continues to be a locomotive for the world economy, even at a lower cruising speed. However, even those that are currently doing well cannot be completely sheltered from the storm. It is critical that we get the engine of global growth up and running once again.
