    The Asia-Pacific region is and will remain the engine of the world economy going forward – it accounts for 57% of global GDP, 46% of world trade and more than a third of the global population – and there is much to celebrate about APEC’s achievements in recent years.

    G20 Ankara: Meeting of Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors - Remarks at session on framework for strong, sustainable and balanced growth

    Launch of 2015 Economic Survey of Iceland

    I am pleased to open this launch with a broadly positive message.

    Keynote speech on the future of productivity: Productivity by all and for all

    During these difficult years, productivity growth has slowed down, reviving fears that we are now entering a period of poor growth and low job creation. One of the main challenges facing our countries is what to do to re-launch productivity, the main factor of long-term growth, and how to do it. This has been the focus of the report we are launching today entitled “The Future of Productivity”.

    Finance and inclusive growth: How to restore a healthy financial sector that supports long-lasting, inclusive growth?

    Finance is a vital ingredient of economic growth, but there can be too much of it. Over the past 50 years, credit by banks and other institutions to households and businesses has grown three times as fast as economic activity. At these levels, further expansion is likely to slow long-term growth and raise inequality.

    Launch of the OECD Economic Outlook, June 2015

    In our new Economic Outlook, we show that the world economy remains stuck in a low-growth equilibrium of low investment, high unemployment, low productivity and low wage growth. The process of healing from the biggest crisis in our lifetime has been very slow. And we are still suffering from its legacies.
