The 2030 Agenda provides the international community with a bold and comprehensive framework to chart a more prosperous, inclusive and sustainable future for all.
I am delighted to welcome you to the OECD, and to Paris, for this year’s Global Forum on Development. Now in its twelfth year, the Forum draws on expertise from across the OECD, including its Development Centre, the Development Co-operation Directorate, the Sahel and West Africa Club, and beyond.
Forum 2016, entitled Productive economies, Inclusive societies will be organised around the 3 cross-cutting themes of the OECD Week: inclusive growth and productivity, innovation and the digital economy, and international collaboration for implementing international agreements (COP21 and the Sustainable Development Goals) and standards (BEPS and automatic exchange of information).
France’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) was USD 12.1 billion in 2012, making it the 4th largest member of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee in terms of the volume of aid. However, this represents 0.46% of French Gross National Income (GNI) – below France’s international commitment. The review recommends that France plan to reach the 0.7% ODA/GNI ratio as soon as possible.
