The OECD and G20 Structural Reform Commitments

 

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.
