It’s all about People: Jobs, Equality and Trust

After more than half a decade of financial, economic and social crisis, the world continues to face significant‌ ‌challenges, including low growth, high and long-term unemployment, rising inequality and a loss of trust in government.

Comprehensive strategies that put the needs of people at their centre are required to achieve ‌strong, sustainable and inclusive growth.

Under the chairmanship of Norway and supported by vice-chairs Australia and Estonia, over 80 Ministers of Finance, Economy, Foreign Affairs and Trade from OECD countries, Key Partner countries and the Russian Federation met to discuss concrete solutions to restore growth with an important emphasis on “Jobs, Equality and Trust”.

This included structural reforms to boost growth and competitiveness, measures to restore trust in governments, and specific actions to tackle youth unemployment, promote gender equality, make taxation fairer, seize the benefits of global value chains, and contribute to wider global development.
