Resilient Economies and Inclusive Societies: Empowering people for jobs and growth

Nearly six years after the start of the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes, some of the main engines of global growth (trade, investment, credit, employment) are not yet where they should be. © OECD

Tackling social challenges, particularly by generating more and better quality jobs and ensuring the effective provision of public services, remains at the forefront of policymakers’ concerns.

At the same time, long-term trends, such as ageing populations and climate change, impose significant policy constraints and challenges.

These economic and social challenges underscore the need to protect and empower people by strengthening ‘human security’.

Focused on this main theme, the 2014 Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) took place at the OECD’s Paris Headquarters on 6-7 May 2014, under the Chairmanship of Japan, with the United Kingdom and Slovenia as Vice-Chairs.

It was held back-to-back with the OECD Forum 2014 on 5-6 May 2014.                 Browse the complete set of photos for the Ministerial Council Meeting 2014
