31/3/16 - The OECD Economic Survey of Germany, to be published on Tuesday 5 April, discusses how the country can use its current position of strength to prepare for the substantial opportunities and challenges that lie ahead, particularly as concerns strengthening productivity and investment, boosting well-being in an ageing society and ensuring that newly-arrived migrants are fully integrated into the labour force and society.
The Survey analyses Germany’s recovery from the global economic crisis and the underlying factors contributing to its resilience and competitiveness. It provides an extensive analysis of performance along a wide range of dimensions of well-being, inclusiveness, productivity and investment, and makes recommendations to boost performance.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the Survey on 5 April in Berlin during a press conference starting at 11:00 local time (09:00 GMT) at the Bundespressekonferenz (Federal Press Conference) Schiffbauerdamm 40, 10117 Berlin (Ecke Reinhardtstraße).
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 09:00 GMT for immediate release.
