OECD Ministerial Meeting: 30-31 May 2018

The Ministerial Council Meeting was opened by French President Emmanuel Macron and OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría. Countries were urged to work harder to ensure that multilateral co-operation effectively addressed today’s global challenges. The meeting discussed co-operation in promoting inclusive growth, fostering international trade, advancing co-operation on taxation and climate change, responding to the impact of digitalisation and new technologies, and ensuring the financing of the Sustainable Development Goals. The theme “Reshaping the foundations of multilateralism for more responsible, effective and inclusive outcomes”, looked at ways to ensure multilateralism better served the needs of those who had missed the benefits of globalisation.
