Ministerial Meeting 2012: Economic Outlook - Policies to foster job-rich and green growth
Wednesday 23 May: 10:30-13:00
Though the global economy is showing signs of improvement, there is still a serious risk of renewed weakening. Are governments’ efforts to balance their budgets working?
The Ministerial will kick off with the public launch of the latest Economic Outlook - an update of the health of the world’s major economies. OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría and Chief Economist Pier Carlo Padoan will outline the present state of the world economy and give projections for the coming years.
Immediately following a Q&A session with media, the Secretary-General and the Chief Economist will lead a panel discussion by ministers and senior economists responding to the burning questions of the day: when will the recovery fully resume? What are the main downside risks? How can we create jobs and increase youth employment without further burdening budgets? And is it possible to balance job-rich and inclusive growth with environmental concerns?
