OECD Secretary-General outlines the steps governments should take to boost job creation and reduce unemployment as the global economy strengthens.
Angel Gurría provides an overview of labour market conditions in OECD countries and explains why large fiscal deficits complicate the policy options even further. He also describes what governments should do to promote a job-rich recovery that benefits all workforce groups, including the most vulnerable.
Les perspectives d’évolution du marché du travail à court terme ne sont pas favorables et les pays sont confrontés à un risque sérieux de “reprise sans emplois” a déclaré le Secrétaire général lors de la réunion des ministres du Travail du G20 à Washington.
In his remarks to the Central Bank of Greece, Mr. Gurría offered the OECD support, expertise, and policy experience to help Greece modernise its economy and put it on a path of sustained growth.
Israel’s economy has shown resilience during the global recession, but more active education and employment policies – particularly targeted at minority groups – are needed to bolster its economic performance and bridge deep divisions within its society, according to Angel Gurría.
Israel has enjoyed strong economic growth over the last decades but the fruits of this growth have not been equally shared amongst the country’s rapidly growing population, warned the OECD Secretary-General.
