Angel Gurría was re-elected secretary general of the OECD on Tuesday, May 26, with a renewed mandate.

“USCIB congratulates Secretary General Gurria on his reelection,” said USCIB President and CEO Peter Robinson. “Through our affiliation with the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD, we have appreciated the opportunity to work with the Secretary General in providing private sector views to the OECD. We look forward to continuing that relationship during his third term.”

The unanimous decision by the 34 member countries of the OECD to renew secretary general Angel Gurría’s mandate for the period 2016-2021 was an acknowledgment of his work to shape a more relevant, inclusive and open organization.

“I am honored and humbled by the trust and confidence the members have bestowed upon me, and look forward to continuing to transform the OECD into a cutting-edge international organization to promote better policies for better lives,” said Gurría.
