Given the slack remaining in economic activity and labour utilisation, together with still-anchored inflation expectations, aggregate demand policies have a role to play in supporting the economic recovery and stimulate jobs.
Mr. Gurría underlined the importance of tackling the challenges of unemployment and inequality. He said: “we need a more inclusive and greener model of growth based on sound institutions… And we must focus even more in our relations with social partners to reach such joint goals”.
"By signing this Memorandum, our organisations commit to deliver a multidimensional and coherent policy advice, to promote the cross-pollination of our assessments, ideas and solutions to ensure better jobs for better lives", said OECD Secretary-General.
The main objective of this project is to gather evidence on local labour markets, in particular on skills supply and demand, employment and productivity. In addition, this project will analyse strengths and weaknesses in the disaggregation of data in interested countries, while assessing how the evidence base can better drive policy implementation which is adapted to the needs of different local labour markets.
The purpose of this analysis is to assess how local flexibility can be injected into national adult education and training systems, while preserving accountability; and to better understand how to create an enabling policy environment for the development of effective local skills strategies.
This LEED project aims at providing OECD Members with a statistical tool for better understanding the relationship between skills, mobility and job quality at the local level.
