Bogotá, 25 October 2013
On 25 October, the OECD Secretary-General, Ángel Gurría presented the Regulatory Reform Review of Colombia and the OECD Public Governance Review of Colombia in an event hosted by the Government of Colombia.
The Regulatory Reform Review of Colombia was requested by the National Planning Department (DNP) in June 2012 and the report was discussed during the 8th meeting of the Regulatory Policy Committee (22-23 April 2013), with the delegates of France and Spain as peer reviewers. The report is composed of a core chapter on Government capacity to ensure high quality regulation, focusing on the national level, and a case study on multi-level regulatory governance, which assesses regulatory reform in Barranquilla.
Colombia has undergone profound change over the last ten years and has made significant progress in implementing its governance agenda with policies that aim to strengthen its institutions and promote sustainable, inclusive growth in all regions of the country. The Public Governance Review therefore offers advice to help Colombia address its governance challenges effectively and efficiently over time. It provides an assessment and recommendations on how to improve its ability to set, steer, and implement multi-year national development strategy.
In addition to this event, the OECD will carry out a Workshop on Regulatory Impact Assessment during November, which is intended to provide practical information and learning through case studies, group exercises, and presentations from OECD staff and government officials with extensive and relevant experience in applying RIA systems. Mexico will support this event with its experts and experience.
