24/06/2014 - Media Briefing: 9.00 am Paris time on Wednesday 2 July
OECD Conference Centre, 2 rue André Pascal, Paris 16ème
The weight of developing nations in the world economy has grown rapidly, but low productivity levels compared with advanced economies could slow down this convergence process and hold back income growth in emerging nations in the years ahead.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría, OECD Development Centre Director Mario Pezzini and the head of the Thematic Unit, Carl Dahlman will present the Development Centre’s latest report on these economic shifts at a media briefing at 9.00 am on Wednesday 2 July during the OECD’s Global Forum on Development. This one-day Forum is part of DEV Week 2014, four days of debate and workshops on development from June 30 to July 3.
Journalists should register online here for this and any other DEV Week events open to the media.
Requests for an advance copy of the report under embargo should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Journalists will be able access the full report on the OECD's password-protected website on its release and a PDF summary will be available here: www.oecd.org/dev/pgd/pgd2014.htm. For further information, please contact Bochra.Kriout@oecd.org (+33 626 74 04 03).
