INVESTING IN THE FUTURE: PEOPLE, PLANET, PROSPERITY
The OECD Forum 2015 took place at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris on 2-3 June 2015, organised around the five cross-cutting themes of the OECD Week.
It explored the importance of investment in placing our economies on sustainable growth paths while addressing inequalities, fostering innovation, helping the transition towards low-carbon economies and financing the Sustainable Development Goals.
It brought together representatives from business, trade unions, civil society, academia and media around about 50 sessions (plenary debates, IdeaFactories, Discovery Lab, panels with lunch, etc.) to share their views on the most critical issues confronting the world and feed into the Ministerial Meeting.

UNLOCKING INVESTMENT FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH AND JOBS
The MCM took place under the chairmanship of the Netherlands, with the Czech Republic, France and Korea as Vice-Chairs.
The meeting brought together OECD Members and Partner countries (Ministers from 34 member countries and Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, South Africa), and several international organisations, to discuss policies that can help unlock stronger, fairer and greener growth.
The MCM paid special attention to promoting investment, enhancing innovation, fostering education and skills, strengthening the multilateral trading system and improving the business climate, including through responsible business conduct.
Discussions addressed the legacies of the crisis, with a strong focus on identifying new policy initiatives to meet the challenges of our time.
This year’s MCM featured an innovative format by which Ministers and senior officials engaged in forward-looking scenario based policy discussions to exchange views on how best to further stimulate international economic and development co-operation.
