Making globalisation work: Better lives for all
The Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) took place at the OECD Paris Headquarters on 7 and 8 June 2017, and was preceded by the 2017 Ministerial Council Statement, starting on 6 June 2017. These and other side events encompass the OECD Week 2017.
The Ministerial meeting was chaired by Denmark, with Australia and the United Kingdom as Vice-Chairs.
The meeting brought together Ministers from Members and Partners to:
- explore policies that could deliver a more inclusive globalisation
- respond to growing citizens’ concerns that globalisation has not benefitted fairly to all
The MCM offered the possibility to:
- discuss a new inclusive growth narrative centred on improving well-being for all in open and digitalised economies
- define a more people-centred approach to international standard-setting
This MCM echoed the pledge of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to “Leave No One Behind”.
