    Trust in government has declined to an average of only 43% in OECD countries. Open governments are fundamental to recover that trust and to build sustainable and inclusive economies. Count on the OECD to achieve this crucial endeavor.

    Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation - closing remarks

    While the SDG Summit was the “what” conference, the last two days have been the “how” conference. By 2030, we need to end extreme poverty. We need to have made a dent on all poverty. And we should be well on the way to eradicating it altogether.

    Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation - opening remarks

    The urgency of sustainable development is evident in all countries. Shifts in wealth, power and growth challenge traditional development models.

In Africa alone in absolute numbers, tax revenues dwarf official development assistance by more than ten times.

    Launch of the OECD Economic Outlook, November 2016

    The message of this Economic Outlook is that if policy makers can avoid the pitfalls of protectionism and seize the opportunity for collective fiscal action offered by still very low interest rates, combined with high-priority structural reforms, then the global economy can at last escape from the low-growth trap. That would indeed be a vindication of the OECD’s motto: better policies for better lives.

    Remarks at Adoption Ceremony of the BEPS Treaty

    I am truly impressed by the large number of countries (99) that have joined this initiative and who are around the table today. More than half are not OECD or G20 members: 55% of this Ad Hoc Group. This in itself is a success, particularly in the context of the new Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) launched a few months ago, and which already includes 87 countries and jurisdictions.
