    Fostering Regional Competitiveness and Sharing the Benefits of Sustained Growth

    The region has been one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing areas in the world. GDP is projected to grow by 5.4% per year on average during 2014-18, and significant gains have been made in terms of poverty eradication and human development. But more should be done to ensure sustained growth and continued convergence in living standards towards the mature economies, said OECD Secretary-General.

    China Go Global

    Going abroad opens new markets for firms, and helps them to become more productive, innovative and ultimately more successful in their business. International investment is also the fuel that helps run the global economy’s engine. But these positive outcomes will only materialise if appropriate framework conditions are in place that allow all companies to compete in a fair and transparent manner, said OECD's Gurría in Beijing.

    Promoting a Fair and Sustainable Welfare System in China

    China is currently strengthening its social safety nets and creating a modern welfare state. A minimum income standard is in place for all residents, and nearly everyone benefits from at least some measure of health insurance. But going forward, further reforms are needed to meet the demands of an increasingly urban population, said OECD Secretary-General in Beijing.

    China Signing Ceremony of the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters

    Today’s signing is both timely and important as the G20 has endorsed automatic exchange of information as the new global standard. This Convention provides the ideal instrument to swiftly implement automatic exchange, and to do so with a wide range of partners. This also represents another significant step in the strengthening of collaboration between China and the OECD, said Angel Gurría.
