    Roundtable on Sustainable Business Conduct

    Although responsible business conduct is a duty for businesses, it also offers major business opportunities.

    Spain’s accession to the Global Deal

    When we launched the Global Deal at the United Nations in September 2016, together with the Swedish Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, and the ILO, I said that it was “an initiative whose moment had come”. Two years on, its relevance has continued to grow. Today, more than ever, we are faced with the acute need to relaunch social dialogue as a fundamental driver to foster a more human, more inclusive economy.

    Spanish Congress of Deputies: Session on inclusive growth

    Inequality is not a new phenomenon, but what is new are the levels of inequality that have increased rapidly in recent years. This is something that we have been documenting for a long time in the OECD. This work is unknown to a large proportion of the general public, but it is work that we are very proud of because it has helped to push inequality to the forefront of political debate.

    Launch of the Economic Outlook

    Today’s Economic Outlook points to a global economy that is losing steam, with the pace of global expansion easing from 3.7% this year to 3.5% in both 2019 and 2020. And one major reason for this is a breakdown in co-operation.

    The OECD has a long tradition of engaging with civil society. In fact, the OECD Council Resolution on relations with civil society dates from 1962, one year after our establishment. Formally, BIAC and TUAC are our two main entities with which we interact regularly, but we have seen over time a growing engagement of our committees with Civil Society Organisations.
