The MCC & OECD: Joining Forces to Catalyze Development
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the U.S. Government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) will host their first investor convening to catalyze investments in Côte d’Ivoire – part of a new MCC-OECD collaboration. The event will include remarks from Côte d’Ivoire Prime Minister Daniel Duncan, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría, and MCC CEO Dana J. Hyde on the importance of strategic investments in the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire. They will be joined by experts and investors from the international development community, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations.
MCC and the OECD recently launched a new collaboration to catalyze investment in the developing world and focus additional development aid on key constraints that not only unlock economic growth but also enhance well-being. By marrying the extensive research in MCC’s Constraints Analyses and the OECD’s Multidimensional Country Reviews, the alliance creates a “foundation”, or an initial guide, for the donor community to focus their investments and maximize their impact.
