Speech by Andrew Dean, Director, OECD Economics Department. Launch of the Economic Survey of Poland 2010
"The crisis brought to the fore that in a globalised economy, no single country has all the answers. Using our methods of peer learning, benchmarking and monitoring, the OECD can pave the way to build a stronger, more balanced and sustainable economic growth" said Angel Gurría in a speech delivered at the Prague University.
Presenting the OECD Economic Survey of the Czech Republic in Prague, Angel Gurría underlined that "The economy has shown considerable resilience in the face of extraordinary challenges."
Presenting the Economic Survey of the Czech Republic at a high level seminar in Prague, A. Gurría suggested the creation of a "watchdog" to monitor the fiscal policy process in order to make it easier to avoid overspending in good times and thus to limit deficit bias.
