OECD 2021 Ministerial Council Meeting

Events open to the Public

27. maj 2021

Det glæder os, at vi har mulighed for at fortsætte samarbejdet med OECD og give VL-medlemmerne mulighed for at deltage i både OECD-Forums Virtual Sessions og udvalgte workshops i OECD’s Forum Engagement Group. I dag starter vi med at invitere til OECD’s Council at Ministerial Level (MCM). 

Rigtig god fornøjelse!:

We would be delighted if you could join us and follow The Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) which is the OECD’s highest-level forum, attended by ministers of finance, economy, foreign affairs, trade and other government departments from the Organisation’s Member and Partner countries, as well as by representatives of other International Organisations.

This year’s MCM will be held in two parts, in May-June and in the autumn, under the Chairmanship of the United States with the Republic of Korea and Luxembourg as Vice chairs.

Topics for the May-June gathering will include: collaboration in the development and distribution of treatments and vaccines, exchanging information in tackling the pandemic, developing and implementing recovery plans to “build back better” and promoting policies to tackle climate change and other environmental challenges, and as well as promote a greener and more inclusive economy.
