As the focus of policy makers moved from crisis management to more structural issues in order to sustain recovery, this year’s Council Meeting at Ministerial Level addressed the key challenges facing governments in the months and years ahead. These included ensuring a sustained and “jobs rich” recovery, while also looking at ways to boost innovation and promote green growth.
