Unlocking investment for sustainable growth and jobs
The 2015 OECD Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) was held at the OECD Headquarters in Paris on Wednesday and Thursday 3-4 June 2015, back to back with the OECD Forum.
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, 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
- improving the business climate, including through responsible business conduct
- strengthening the multilateral trading system
- supporting the Post-2015 development agenda
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 two innovative aspects: besides plenary sessions, Ministers also conducted discussions in a breakout group format. In addition, Ministers engaged in forward-looking scenario based policy discussions and exchanged views on how best to further stimulate international economic and development co-operation.
