    Promoting a Fair and Sustainable Welfare System in China

    China is currently strengthening its social safety nets and creating a modern welfare state. A minimum income standard is in place for all residents, and nearly everyone benefits from at least some measure of health insurance.

    OECD Integrity Forum

    Corruption undermines trust in policy, it erodes the quality of public administration, and it distorts incentives, taking its toll on investment and growth.

    The core message of this year's survey is that to sustain this momentum, and restore the income convergence process vis-à-vis European economies, the Czech Republic must strengthen its domestic economy. The successful growth model of the past, based on Foreign Direct Investments in export-oriented manufacturing and low labour costs, needs to be adapted and broadened, said OECD Secretary-General.

    Mexico Stands Out: Implementing Reforms for a Historic Transformation

    Mexico is upgrading itself, it is modernising its "operating system", generating a virtuous circle that places it amongst the most promising economies in the world.
