High-Level Policy Forum on the New OECD Jobs Strategy
The German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the OECD jointly organised a High-Level Policy Forum on the New Jobs Strategy on 13 June 2017 in Berlin. The Forum was hosted by Minister Andrea Nahles together with Secretary-General Angel Gurría.
The Forum is a key milestone for Ministers of Labour and Employment to discuss their main policy priorities and how these could be best reflected in the new Strategy. Ministers discussed the new framework proposed for the OECD Jobs Strategy and the emerging policy messages. Ministers exchanged views on a number of specific topics of particular relevance, including: how to enhance job quality; how to promote labour market resilience; and how to adapt policies and institutions to the challenges of a rapidly changing labour market.
