Release of OECD’s Going for Growth 2021: Shaping a Vibrant Recovery


08/04/2021 - 

Live presentation on Wednesday 14 April 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed how existing structural weaknesses undermine the resilience of our economies. How governments respond to the crisis will shape the recovery and future well-being of people worldwide.

The OECD will present the 2021 edition of Going for Growth on Wednesday 14 April 2021. It identifies how OECD and key non-member countries can build resilience and sustainability, raise productivity and help people and businesses adapt to the changes underway in our economies.

OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría and Italian Minister of Economy and Finance Daniele Franco will present the report online at 10:30 CEST (08:30 GMT). The Going for Growth 2021 launch follows the 2nd meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bank governors under the Italian Presidency on 7 April, in which participants discussed ways to push forward the economic recovery and promote more sustainable growth.

The Going for Growth 2021 presentation will be webcast live, without registration.
