21/11/2017 - The OECD will present its latest Economic Outlook, containing analysis and projections for its 35 member countries and other major economies, on Tuesday 28 November at 11:00 a.m. CET (10:00 GMT).
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría and Chief Economist Catherine Mann will present the Outlook (in English with French interpretation) at the OECD Conference Centre at 11:00 a.m.
The Outlook will be freely accessible in pdf format on the OECD’s web site at: www.oecd.org/economy/economicoutlook.htm from 11.00 a.m. You are invited to include this Internet link in media reports.
Requests for electronic advance copies of the Economic Outlook, under embargo, should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Journalists requesting an electronic version in advance of the release time agree to respect OECD embargo conditions.
In advance of the Economic Outlook presentation, the OECD will release a Special Chapter that assesses the high and continually rising levels of indebtedness of both households and non-financial corporations in many advanced and emerging economies. Resilience in a time of high debt looks at the vulnerability of highly-indebted countries to financial and other economic shocks, as well as the potential impacts on the sustainability of growth. It proposes an integrated policy response to enhance the resilience of economies to shocks and minimise the risks of sub-par growth in the medium term.
The Special Chapter will be accessible in pdf format on the OECD’s web site at: http://www.oecd.org/eco/outlook/economic-outlook/ from 11:00 a.m. on Thursday 23 November.
