Speaking at the governance forum of the third MENA-OECD ministerial meeting, Mr. Gurría noted that sound regulations and efficient public services are essential for better functioning private markets. He added that governments should ensure integrity, transparency and accountability by modernizing legal frameworks and encourage a more inclusive economy, an economy empowering women.
In the context of the economic crisis, reforms can become an effective vehicle for sustained recovery but governments must find the right balance between an effective regulatory and institutional framework and minimising unnecessary red tape. Moreover, governments cannot reset the economy on their own and the contribution of the women and the private sector will be crucial, according to the OECD Secretary-General.
Opening this event in Marrakesh, Angel Gurría underlined that the economic crisis has not spared the MENA region, with a significant economic contraction and a severe impact on the labour markets. According to the Secretary-General, the MENA-OECD Initiative can serve as a model for effective co-operation in building the global economy of the future.
