OECD Week

 

OECD Week 2016: Paris, 31 May - 2 June

STRENGTHEN PRODUCTIVITY AND PROMOTE INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE GROWTH

 

OECD Week 2016 placed a central emphasis on the need for policies that strengthen productivity, and in so doing, promote inclusive and sustainable growth. 

Since the crisis, productivity growth has slowed and inequality has been getting worse. 

Addressing inequality is essential to ensuring more productive economies while allaying conventional fears that increasing productivity means working longer, harder and later in life. 


OECD Week included:

  • OECD Forum (31 May-1 June)
  • Meeting of the OECD Council at Ministerial Level (1-2 June)
  • Meetings linked to G20, B20 and L20 forums
