EMnet is a business-oriented platform for dialogue and analysis of economic trends, business strategies and policy challenges between high level officials, top executives and OECD experts. EMnet provides networking opportunities with executive peers from multinational corporations and policy-makers from emerging countries.
Launched in 2007, EMnet holds three meetings a year at the OECD Headquarters in Paris, with a focus on three regions (Africa, Asia, and Latin America), and one session in China (Beijing). EMnet meetings are closed to the public and operates under Chatham House rules in order to trigger frank discussions on the issues at stake, and share experiences on how companies and policy makers adapt their strategies to emerging markets issues. EMnet participants are mainly top executives (CEOs, Vice-Presidents, Managing Directors, Heads of Strategy, Chief Economists) who represent diverse sectors willing to engage in outspoken debates with high-level policy-makers (up to Minister level) and OECD experts.
Members of the Network also have a tailored access to OECD’s knowledge in different fields (e.g. innovation, environment, trade, finance, energy, regions or specific countries):
- Access to the vast amount of OECD state-of-the-art economic research and publications;
- Invitation to OECD fora and events, such as the International Economic Fora on Africa and on Latin America and Caribbean; and
- Ad-hoc bilateral meetings with the OECD, for instance with the Development Centre’s regional desks for macro outlooks on Africa, South East Asia or Latin America.
EMnet has a restricted website for its members: www.oecd.org/dev/emnet
