Aug 23, 2021Event Updates

Kyriakos Pierrakakis is also President of the OECD Global Strategy Group.

The OECD Global Strategy Group, which brings together Undersecretaries, Secretaries-General and other senior officials each year, has the task of facilitating cooperation between Member States. It prepares the work of the OECD Annual Ministerial Meeting, but adopts a more long-term vision.

Topics covered by the Commission include: digital transformation, the future of the labor market and trade in a digitized world, policy planning and international cooperation in a post-pandemic global economic system, and the design and implementation of a sustainable and comprehensive recovery plan. Another goal is to make the Commission more open globally, by expanding the reach of key partners, both from the candidate countries and from G7 and G20 Sherpas representatives.
