    Policies to revive growth and put European countries back on a sustainable path - European Parliament ECON Committee

    Last time I addressed the Committee in November 2013, we were still in crisis mode. Two weeks ago, the OECD released its Interim Economic Outlook and it seems that the Spring of 2015 has brought encouraging signs for the global economy. Lower oil prices and widespread monetary easing have raised the potential for the acceleration of growth that is so needed in many countries, especially in Europe.

This is very encouraging. Let me share with you our perspective of the Swedish economy, of its resilience, but also of the key challenges ahead and possible ways to address them.

    Launch of 2015 Economic Survey of Luxembourg

    It’s a pleasure for me to be able to open an Economic Survey speech with a truly positive message. I’ve launched many surveys throughout the OECD in difficult times. There haven’t been many other occasions over the last years where I could stand up and say: things are looking good!

    Promoting decent work worldwide through sustainable supply chains - G7 Stakeholder Conference

    Sustainable supply chains can transform global trade and development by ensuring that businesses behave responsibly even in countries where social, environmental and human rights standards are weak or not adequately enforced. We have witnessed too often the disastrous consequences that can result if this is not done.

    Today we are here to talk about a new approach to growth. A type of growth that we aspire for future generations: more resilient, more inclusive and greener. We have intensified our efforts to revise our economic thinking and acting, our analyses, models and recommendations, and are now beginning to see concrete results which we are streamlining into our policy advice.

    G20: Remarks for Session 2 - Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth

    We therefore need a “copernician” change in our approach to the growth – inequality nexus: let’s not think growth first, and inequality thereafter but let’s consider both of them, together, in their circularity. In other words, let’s think “Inclusive Growth”, right from the start, and let’s make it another touchstone of our efforts and complement the Pittsburgh tryptic of strong, sustainable and balanced growth!
