    Presentation of OECD reports on Competition Tribunals and on Freight Transport Regulation

Your viewpoints and the ideas that will emerge from these debates will be yet another contribution to making Mexico more competitive on the basis of a more level playing field.

    Public Governance Ministerial Meeting: Plenary session remarks

    Today’s discussions focus on the importance of good governance for inclusive and sustainable growth.

    OECD Forum on Financing Democracy and Averting Policy Capture: Remarks by the OECD Secretary-General

The 2014 Edelman Trust Barometer shows a continuing decline of trust in government to 44%, down from 48% in 2013.

    WTO Ministerial Conference in Bali: too good a prize to pass up

    As the OECD's latest global economic forecast has confirmed, world trade is now growing at an extremely low rate. This brings into stark focus the need for trade negotiators at the WTO to cut a deal to bring a much-needed boost to world trade and the global economy.

    Update: Administrative Burden Reduction project

    The role of government is to act as an enabler, generating the right conditions for growth and ensuring that its benefits are fairly distributed. Both the Competition Assessment and the Administrative Burden Reduction project can serve as roadmaps to achieve these goals by making it easier to do business in Greece, said OECD Secretary-General.
