 Latest OECD Recommendations

 

  • Further streamline bankruptcy procedures with an organic reform of the bankruptcy law to reduce the length and cost of debt recovery and to enhance business dynamism;
  • Improve the efficiency of the public administration; further streamline the court system, with more specialisation where appropriate; increase the use of mediation;
  • Enhance the efficiency of the tax structure; an overly complex tax code, which results in high tax evasion, and numerous and unjustified tax exemptions distort economic activity;
  • Open local public services to competition;
  • Strengthen apprenticeships, vocational education, training courses and lifelong learning. Develop a national framework on lifelong learning to help local authorities to align courses and practices with best practices;
  • Promote higher and better quality public investment and improve infrastructure management.
