Briefing notes for the 2013 Edition of the OECD Employment Outlook
The Secretary-General of the OECD, Angel Gurría, will intervene at the 8th Trento's Festival of Economics "Sovereignty in conflict" (Italy) on how to address global inequalities.
Entrepreneurship and the development of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) are key drivers of economic growth and job creation. The OECD review series on Boosting Local Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Creation, of which this study is a part, examines the capacity of local economies to support successful new enterprise creation and the growth of small enterprises.
The capacity building seminar was based on an active exchange of experiences between the participants duly provided in advance. The strength of such a roundtable event lies in the discussion of these experiences in an interactive setting.
These country notes profile public sector human resource practices and policies, covering issues including legal frameworks; age and gender composition of workers; public sector restructuring; management practices; industrial relations and reforms.

The seminar was targeted at national, regional and local practitioners who dealt with anticipating and managing demographic changes in Russia and Eastern European countries and wanted to interchange experiences and approaches with other experts from OECD countries.
This seminar was part of a three-year programme of cooperation between the European Commission and the OECD LEED Programme to monitor and report on entrepreneurial activity in Europe and related public policies and actions.
To find effective financing and delivery mechanisms to address long-term unemployment is a challenge which practitioners and policy-makers confront. The seminar reviewed innovations in these areas and reflected on how they can be used to support the long-term unemployed into employment.
