This edition of the OECD Secretary-General's Report to Ministers outlines the main
achievements of the OECD in 2020, notably the Organisation’s efforts to help manage
the COVID-19 crisis and pave the way towards a stronger, more inclusive, resilient
and green recovery. It describes the OECD’s work across major policy areas, with a
focus on health, employment, inequalities, economics and tax, education, and the environment,
among others. The report outlines the activities of the Secretary-General and his
office, as well as those of OECD directorates, the Secretariats of Entities within
the OECD family and OECD Social Partners.
The OECD works on finding evidence-based solutions to a range of social, economic
and environmental challenges, promoting “Better Policies for Better Lives”. The OECD
is one of the world’s largest and most trusted sources of comparable statistical data
and research. The OECD serves as not only a pathfinder for new narratives and new
initiatives at the global level, but also as a ‘do’ tank ready to support members
and partners with our data, standards and evidence-based policy advice.
