The unique OECD peer review process has helped improve public policy. It assesses how countries manage the design, adoption and enforcement of regulations according to a conceptual framework. It ensures comparability while taking account of institutional and cultural differences across countries.
As part of its ongoing work on the mutual agreement procedure (MAP) under tax treaties, the OECD makes available to the public annual statistics on the MAP caseloads of member countries and of certain non-OECD economies. MAP statistics have now been released for 2008 and 2009.
OECD has launched a series of reports in 16 countries including Greece. Each report contains a survey of the main barriers to employment for young people, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school to work.

This note is taken from Chapter 3 of Economic Policy Reforms: Going for Growth 2010.
Greece needs to enhance its education performance. While important challenges remain at all levels, early childhood education and care and the upper secondary education are in most need of reforms.
The health care system is seen as not working well by the population. One source of dissatisfaction is the high share of private spending on health. Public health care services need also improvement.
What are the economic challenges Greece faces? What could be the impact of the global crisis? What should fiscal policy do? What are the reform priorities in the public sector? How to improve public health care services? How to enhance education performance?
The high public debt and a large pension burden heighten the urgency to improve the efficiency of the public sector to enhance fiscal viability and restore room for manoeuvre for stabilization policy.
