Segun el Secretario general de la OCDE, A. Gurría, España debe y puede superar los desafíos importantes de nuestro tiempo. Ya se han tomado medidas importantes y necesarias. Hay que mantener ese rumbo en el futuro.
During his official visit to Spain, the Secretary-General of the OECD, Angel Gurría will meet with leaders to discuss a range of key policy issues, including developments in the global economy and financial markets.
During a workshop on climate change organised by the European Union, Mr Gurría reminded that "far from perfect, the Copenhagen Accord is a hard-fought political agreement". He added that the world now needs to find an ambitious and legally-binding global agreement on climate change in Mexico and that the EU should continue to play a leading role for the negotiations.
