THE OECD IS AN ACTIVE PARTNER OF THE G20
Since the Pittsburgh Summit, the OECD has been an active partner of the G20 in its efforts to strengthen the global economy, accelerate recovery from the crisis and promote a more harmonious rules-based globalisation process. Upon a call by G20 Leaders, the Organisation supported the G20 during the crisis and continues to provide policy expertise and analysis to address the complex challenges of the post-crisis era and a fragile recovery.
OECD’s expertise continues to be increasingly recognised and relied upon for identifying the world’s most pressing policy challenges and finding ways to address them. The Secretary-General is an active participant of all the summits and leads the organisation in carrying out tasks mandated by the members and - in close co-operation with the Presidencies of the G20 - in framing, developing and carrying out their priorities. By working with the different Presidencies, the OECD has broadened its support and become a recognised partner of the Group. This has also been the opportunity for the Organisation to build a closer relationship with non-member economies, allowing it to learn further about their policy expectations and integrate their views in a more systematic way, contributing to reaffirming the OECD’s role as a global standard-setter, and supporting its strive for relevance.
Given its multidisciplinary character, the OECD participates in G20 meetings both at the highest political level (Leaders, Ministers, Sherpas, Finance Deputies) as well as at the technical level (Working Groups). The Sherpa Unit, headed by OECD Special Counsellor to the Secretary General, Chief of Staff and Sherpa Gabriela Ramos, works to contribute to virtually all of the Group’s strands of work and most G20 working groups with data, analytical reports, policy recommendations and standards. Our contributions to the Group’s work are frequently carried out in collaboration with other international organisations. More about the OECD and the G20...
