What is an OECD Global Forum?
An OECD Global Forum is a network of policy makers and stakeholders from member and partner countries created by one or several OECD Committees.
When OECD Committees invite partners and organisations to their meetings, the number of these Partners is limited. If they wish to involve more countries and other stakeholders in their work, they have the option of creating a Global Forum.
What Global Fora exist today?
Since 2008, OECD Committees have created numerous Global Fora, most of which continue to be convened regularly.
The latest to be created are the Global Forum on Digital Security for Prosperity (2018) and the Global Forum on the Future of Education and Skills 2030 (2020). The Global Forum on Tourism Statistics, Knowledge and Policy changed its mandate in 2020.
Today Global Fora exist on:
- Biotechnology (information forthcoming)
- Digital Security for Prosperity
- Finance (Public Debt Management)
- Public Governance
- Responsible Business Conduct
- Tourism Statistics, Knowledge and Policy
- Value-Added Tax
The Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes is governed by different rules than the OECD's other Global Fora.
