“Multilateralism is at a crossroads. Its ability to deliver effective responses to today’s global challenges is increasingly tested, despite the fact that it remains the best way we have to answer to them. How can we best reshape multilateralism to address growing interconnectedness across countries, firms and people as well as rapid technological change? How can we respond to those who feel left behind by globalisation?
Our 2018 Ministerial Council Meeting, chaired by France, will be looking at these and other questions. Leaders and Ministers will gather in Paris on 30-31 May to discuss ways in which we can harness the potential of international co-operation to promote human progress and protect our planet, and how the OECD can be most effective in its efforts to advance better policies for better lives.”
Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General
