What is the OECD Forum?

 

The OECD Forum is the "must-go" event on today's international agenda 
The OECD Forum is a "multi-stakeholder summit" which brings together business and labour leaders, civil society personalities, government ministers and leaders of international organisations to discuss the hottest issues on the international agenda.

 

OECD Secretary-General, Angel Gurría notes risks and presents responses to the economic crisis, including global co-operation on medium and long-term strategies to be discussed during OECD's Forum and Ministerial Council Meeting.

"The OECD is a hub for dialogue on global economic issues and the OECD Forum is key in this endeavour... We are convinced that we can only find these solutions through an enhanced dialogue and co-operation among all stakeholders"

The OECD Forum takes place in conjunction with the annual OECD ministerial summit which will be chaired by Korean Prime Minister HAN Seung-soo.

 

"Today, the world continues to face a weakening global economy. While our generation is not unique in confronting various crises, the combined magnitude of the current financial turbulence, shaped by the forces of globalization, is indeed without historical reference. Every single issue we confront today is constantly affected by changes that are occurring well beyond our nominal controls and national boundaries." Read more

Forum speakers are usually at the level of Minister or CEO. Forum 2008 attracted approximately 1700 participants from 68 countries.
