Unlocking investment for sustainable growth and jobs
The 2015 OECD Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) will be held at the OECD Headquarters in Paris on Wednesday and Thursday 3-4 June 2015, back to back with the OECD Forum.
The MCM will take place under the chairmanship of the Netherlands, with the Czech Republic, France and Korea as Vice-Chairs.
The meeting will bring together OECD Members and Partner countries, and several international organisations, to discuss policies that can help unlock stronger, fairer and greener growth.
The MCM will pay 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 will address 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 will feature two innovative aspects: besides plenary sessions, Ministers will also conduct discussions in a breakout group format. In addition, Ministers will engage in forward-looking scenario based policy discussions and exchange views on how best to further stimulate international economic and development co-operation.
