OECD Forum 2010

 

 

Road to Recovery:

Innovation, Jobs & Clean Growth

26-27 May 2010, OECD Conference Centre, Paris 

 

Be part of the debate!

Innovation and green growth are inextricably linked in the strategies proposed by governments, international organisations, business, trade unions and other stakeholders for recovery across the globe. In order for innovation and green growth to deliver these high expectations, supportive, practical policy and regulatory frameworks have to be developed. These will consist of a mix of regulations, information campaigns, financial support for R&D and education, and carrot and stick measures such as tax incentives and/or fines.

 

To develop the right regulatory and policy mechanisms, it is essential to ensure that a dynamic business, trade union, civil society and knowledge community is consulted and ready to work together to take on these challenges. It is key to learn from existing best practices across the world, but also not to repeat mistakes.

 

The Forum is a first opportunity for a debate to take place which includes all sectors of government and society who are involved in making a “green”, smart, and inclusive recovery happen. The 2009 Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) launched the green growth idea, and ministers will be discussing just what it might look like ahead of a final report in 2011, so this is the moment for stakeholders to give their views and feed into the process.

Why come to 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.

 

Forum speakers are usually at the level of Minister or CEO. Forum 2009 attracted approximately 1,100 participants from 100 countries.


The OECD Forum takes place in conjunction with the annual OECD ministerial summit which will be chaired by Italy.

 

OECD Secretary-General, Angel Gurría notes "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"
