Latvia to take leading role at Paris OECD Forum in May

Latvia will be vice-chair, along with New Zealand, at a major meeting of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to be held in Paris and chaired by France at the end of May.

The OECD Forum 2018 is described by organizers as  "reflecting on what brings us together, moving from diagnosis to action, and shaping solutions to build these much-needed bridges."

"The OECD Forum was created in 2000 to discuss the key economic and social challenges on the international agenda. It is an important part of the annual OECD Week that also features the OECD main Ministerial meeting, and seminars linked to key international fora (G20)," the official website declares.

This 2-day public engagement event gathers high-level government representatives, CEOs, leaders from civil society and trade unions as well as prominent members of academia and media.

The full program of the event has yet to be finalized.

Latvia joined the OECD in 2016.
