Under Korea’s leadership, a G20 development agenda was delivered at the Seoul Summit, encapsulated in the Seoul Development Consensus for Shared Growth and its associated Multi-Year Action Plan on Development (MYAP). The OECD took on a role of "pathfinder" for the G20, by helping Korean authorities shape this "new" G20 development agenda. Alongside other international organisations, the OECD provided analytical support to G20 member countries in order to design the G20 MYAP.
The OECD also contributed extensively to the definition of the G20 development concepts, based on growth and resilience, as well as knowledge-sharing and policy dialogues to benefit low-income countries.
Leaders tasked the OECD with coordinating, jointly with other relevant international organisations, work on five of the nine pillars in the MYAP:
- Human Resource Development,
- Private Investment and Job Creation,
- Food Security,
- Domestic Resource Mobilisation,
- Knowledge Sharing.
