BIAC, the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD, for which USCIB serves as the American member federation, has just released its 2016 annual report. The report showcases the breadth and depth of business (including American business) involvement at the 35-nation Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The 2016 annual report also marks the launch of a new BIAC logo aimed at solidifying the organization’s role as the voice of “Business at the OECD.”
BIAC Chairman Phil O’Reilly and BIAC Secretary General Bernhard Welschke write in the report’s introduction: “Productivity and inclusive growth have been guiding themes at the OECD in 2016. Throughout the year, and in hundreds of topical consultations, Business at OECD advocated measures that would strengthen the competitive environment in markets and enable the participation of all in our economies. We also contributed to the debates that helped shape international agreements such as the G20 Action Plan on BEPS, climate change and COP 21, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”
