Productivity and long term growth

Workshop: Structural Reforms, Crisis Exit Strategies and Growth

 

       

Co-sponsored by OECD and Banque de France, 9-10 December 2010 

Cercle Républicain, 5 avenue de l’Opéra, 75001 Paris

Exiting the current financial and economic crisis requires sustaining activity, absorbing unemployment and consolidating public finances.  OECD countries have implemented a number of emergency measures to this end, but as economic stagnation persists the potential role of structural reforms in fuelling growth has become center place in the policy debate.


The workshop focuses on how a renewed drive for structural reforms could be helpful to exit the crisis and resume sustained growth of OECD economies. It gathers experts from academia, national administrations (Central Banks and Finance Ministries), international organizations and economic policy think tanks and aims at stimulating reflection in this important policy area through the presentation of empirical studies, a round table and general discussion.
