The encouraging news came just ahead of  the annual OECD Forum meeting in Paris, which Latvia is helping to chair. You can see the full program of the event HERE

"Shaping policy in a 'post-truth' world and identifying opportunities for deeper civic engagement will be at the heart of the discussions which will focus on addressing three interconnected issues: international co-operation, inclusive growth and digitalisation," the organizers say. 

France will chair the Ministerial meeting on the theme of "Reshaping the foundations of multilateralism", with New Zealand and Latvia as vice-chairs. French President Emmanuel Macron will deliver an opening speech in the afternoon of 30 May. Earlier in the day the OECD will launch its Economic Outlook.

LSM is listed as a media partner of the event.

The 2018 #OECDForum is next week already!
We will be focusing on What brings us #together - join the discussion on shaping #solutions to bridge societal divides.
