REGISTRATION OPEN - Deadline 28th February 2013


Localities across the OECD area are confronted with the challenge of reducing high and persistent unemployment and defining new sources of economic growth, all in the context of shrinking public resources. Local and national governments are in search of policies and instruments that work to rebuild economies and jobs from the bottom up. What mechanisms can be put in place locally to accelerate change, especially in tackling complex cross-cutting issues? And how can national policies be adapted to achieve maximum local impact and ensure that policy implementation mechanisms are operating efficiently at a local level?

The 9th Annual Meeting will offer an opportunity to reflect on innovative ways to support local job creation, business growth and effective policy delivery.
