    Growing stronger together in Seoul

    Since entering the OECD 20 years ago, Korea has made a habit of being at the front of the class. You have led the OECD on several fronts, from R&D intensity, to university graduation rates, and the number of hi-tech firms operating at the technology frontier!

    Implementing the New Urban Agenda through National Urban Policy: Ministerial Perspectives

    It is a pleasure to be here in Quito for a unique event that comes round only every 20 years. Habitat III is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to rewrite everything we know about cities. And it is timely. For the first time in history over half of humanity lives in urban areas. By 2050 it will be nearly 70%. Urban policy is at the coalface of human and economic development, it’s key to our progress, and our well-being.

    A mission to promote inclusive growth in cities

    Each and every one of us here in Quito is united in a single mission: to promote stronger, sustainable and inclusive growth. And to deliver, we must rely on cities!

And it is the mission at the heart of the OECD’s Inclusive Growth in Cities Initiative.

This translates into great promise for reinvigorating growth, addressing our social and environmental challenges and ultimately enhancing people’s well-being.

    October 2016 APEC Finance Ministerial Meeting: Remarks on global and regional economic and financial outlook

    Much of Asia and the Pacific continues to outpace the rest of the world economy. In the last two decades, the economic performance of the region has been remarkable. Per capita income rose by 45 per cent between 1997 and 2014, lifting millions out of poverty. Trade has been the engine of this dynamic performance, but there are signs that it is sputtering.
