OECD Emerging Markets Network - EMnet


The Emerging Markets Network (EMnet) is the OECD Development Centre’s business platform for dialogue and analysis of policy challenges, economic trends and business strategies between high-level officials, top executives from multinational corporations  and OECD experts, focused on the emerging markets.

EMnet events are closed to the public and operate under Chatham House rule in order to trigger outspoken discussions, and share experiences on how companies and policy makers adapt their strategies to emerging markets issues.
