    2017 Health Ministerial Meeting: The Next Generation of Health Reforms - opening remarks

    Good health is the foundation for well-being, for labour-markets, and for inclusive societies. We cannot afford to get health policy wrong. The lives of citizens depend on it. To build the health systems of tomorrow, the hard work must start today. Together, we can build the evidence, identify the best practices, and set the vision that we need for stronger health systems, better health policies, and better, healthier, lives.

    People at the Centre: The Future of Health - opening remarks at 2017 OECD High-Level Policy Forum

    People-centeredness means treating people, patients, their loved ones, carers and others with compassion, dignity and respect. It means involving them in decision-making about their health and their care. It means doing things ‘with’ people, not ‘to’ them. It means involving people in system design and in policy making.

    Presentation of the OECD Integrity Review of Mexico

    With this crusade against corruption, with these new laws, with this new culture of integrity that we are striving to build, we can lay the basis for what will be the most important transformation in Mexico's recent history. But the hard work is just beginning. We need now to translate the letter of the law into a wide-ranging change of institutional conduct and culture.

    Presentation of the OECD Review of Gender Policies in Mexico

    Women’s contribution to Mexico’s economic and social development is hugely important. It is directly linked to the country’s competitiveness and inclusive productivity. We must both acknowledge and strengthen it. Few policies are more effective at improving Mexico’s economic performance and ending poverty and inequality than the economic empowerment of women as part of the workforce in a gender-equal environment.

    Presentation of the 2017 Economic Survey of Mexico

    Mexico's macroeconomic fundamentals are solid and well administered, monetary policy is appropriate and independent and is handled in a responsible way, and the reforms are beginning to show results. Mexico is improving its capacity for growth from within. But much remains to be done to transform these reforms into inclusive growth. Much more must be done to end poverty.
