In this speech, Angel Gurría called for countries to rethink their policies to nurture and guide innovation, noting that innovation needs to be seen as a system.
In this speech during the launch of the OECD innovation strategy, Angel Gurria noted that more than ever, we need to reboot our economies with a more intelligent type of growth, driven by new start-ups, by the most innovative small SMEs and banks, and more.
Faced with unprecedented levels of unemployment, unsustainable fiscal deficits and public debt and weak economic growth, governments need to focus on innovation and pro-green policies as potential new sources of growth, says OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría.
A year ahead of Korea chairing the next G20 Summit, Mr. Gurría described in Seoul the “cocktail” of strategy, policies and framework conditions that will enable economies to harness new sources of economic growth, prevent environmental degradation and enhance the quality of life.
Dans cette allocution prononcée au Forum économique international des Amériques, M. Gurría souligne que l'innovation jouera un rôle déterminant pour stimuler la croissance économique et résoudre les grands défis mondiaux et sociaux de notre temps : la pauvreté persistante, le chômage, le changement climatique, la gestion de l’eau et les soins de santé, en particulier à l’heure du vieillissement de nos populations.
