09/07/2018 - The OECD will launch two new reports on the Czech Republic – an Economic Survey and an Environmental Performance Review – on Monday 16 July in Prague.
OECD Economic Survey and Environmental Performance Review of the Czech Republic
Monday 16 July at 13:45, Hrzan Palace, Prague
The OECD Economic Survey of the Czech Republic 2018 examines factors behind the country’s robust economic growth and record low unemployment. It also looks at looming pressures on public finances from low productivity, labour shortages and an ageing population that will drive up health and pension spending. The Survey also suggests ways to improve the health care system.
OECD Environmental Performance Reviews: Czech Republic 2018 evaluates the country’s progress towards greening the economy and reducing reliance on fossil fuels. It discusses what needs to be done to achieve the country’s long-term climate goals. The Review also analyses air quality, waste and materials management, and sustainable urban development.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the two reports at a press conference with Prime Minister Andrej Babiš starting at 13:45 at the Hrzan Palace (Loretánská 177/9, 118 00 Praha 1). Journalists are invited to register by emailing Marcela Svobodová.
The reports will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 14:00 Prague time (12:00 GMT) on Monday 16 July for immediate release.
The Environmental Review and an Overview of the Economic Survey with main conclusions will be freely accessible at the following links which you are invited to include in articles:
