"OECD statistics reflect the evolving need for reliable cross-country indicators for policy-makers and the world at large. As former Counsellor to the OECD Chief Economist and Deputy-Head of the Secretary General's Private Office, I witnessed the increasing demand for new structural indicators in key policy areas such as competition, trade, education and environment.
As Deputy-Director of Labour and Social Affairs, I had the privilege to interact with many players in the fields of employment, family and children, health and immigration policies to develop a range of social statistics.
These experiences are invaluable as I take up my new role as OECD Chief Statistician where I am responsible for moving forward the agenda of measuring the well-being and progress of societies to better reflect individuals' living conditions beyond economic aggregates, such as GDP."
