Our approaches so far have left too many people behind, detached from the “necessary tools” or the “right connections” to raise their incomes and develop their full capabilities. It is time to turn around this logic. It is time to see economics as a tool to improve people’s lives, said OECD Secretary-General.
A. Gurría said that attracting enough high-skilled candidates for some countries may require introducing elements of supply, as well as demand-driven migration in their immigration regimes.
The global recovery is becoming self-sustained and more broad-based but is taking place at different speeds across countries and regions. Tackling high unemployment, fiscal consolidation and global imbalances remain the key challenges, says OECD Secretary-General.
Canada’s challenge is to develop a sustainable green growth strategy centred on innovation and human capital, and design “even better policies for even better lives”, declared A. Gurría at a conference in Ottawa.
"Canada and the OECD have been working together for five decades to produce better policies for better lives. We must use this partnership to reshape the global economy according to new values of inclusiveness, environmental respect and creative interdependence", said Mr. Gurría.
G20 countries need to keep up the momentum of structural economic reform in order to boost confidence and job creation, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria tells G20 leaders.
Policy makers must strike a "new balance" between the twin needs for fiscal consolidation and support for a jobs-rich recovery, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria tells business leaders ahead of the G20 summit.
La politique de développement rural adoptée par le gouvernement provincial du Québec compte parmi les plus innovantes de la zone OCDE, a déclaré Angel Gurría lors de la présentation de cette publication. Représentant 20 % du PIB du Québec, les zones rurales ont également connu le plus fort accroissement du revenu des ménages à l’intérieur de la province entre 2000 et 2005, démontrant ainsi que ruralité ne rime pas avec déclin
In the coming years, the world economy will need a much more solid connection between public policy and the citizen for which policy is made. The spinal cord of that connection can be summed up in one question: What kind of world economy do we want to create?
After two years of bad news and trillions of dollars of losses, the global economy is now stabilising. The challenge is to move from a policy-based recovery to self-sustained growth. How can cities, the main economic engines of this world, contribute to build stronger, cleaner and fairer economies?
