It helps create an enabling policy environment that supports private sector–led growth and open, competitive markets. It contributes expertise on the main driving forces behind OECD projections for the global economy, key risks, and priority policy messages via webinars and meetings with the OECD Economic Policy Committee leadership. It also undertakes economic surveys of Business at OECD members.

    Business engagement at OECD

    The OECD is a leading purveyor of cross-cutting statistics and fact-based policy recommendations. Through a unique system of peer review and monitoring of implementation, these OECD recommendations have important bearing on the business environments in OECD and many emerging economies. The Economic Policy Committee offers a unique channel by which the private sector can, at an early stage, work to shape the ground-breaking analysis and policy recommendations of landmark OECD publications.
    The Economic Policy Committee contributes to the work of the following OECD bodies:
    • OECD Economic Policy Committee
    • OECD Working Party 1 on Macroeconomic & Structural Policy Analysis
    • OECD Global Forum on Productivity
