Who is involved


This Initiative counts with a Network for Policy Dialogue whose participants are high-level policy makers from Ministries and Government Agencies responsible for development strategies, competitiveness, innovation, industrial and trade policies of a selected, but not exclusive group of OECD and non-OECD economies. As of January 2017 the Initiative counts with a network of 17 participating countries.

This Initiative also benefits from an Advisory Board from International Organisations to promote a collaborative approach, foster knowledge sharing and increase the outreach and impact of its activities.
