At the Pittsburgh Summit in September 2009, leaders of the Group of Twenty (G20) economies agreed to work together to promote an enduring recovery, and strong and sustainable medium-term growth through a multilateral process through which G-20 countries: (i) identify objectives for the global economy, (ii) agree on the policies required to achieve these objectives; and (iii) assess progress towards meeting these shared objectives. This activity is called the Mutual Assessment Process (MAP).
On the request of the G20, the OECD, in co-operation with other international organisations, provides technical analysis to help evaluate the appropriateness of the reforms nominated by countries, and the progress towards implementing those reforms.
