A Meeting of the OECD Council at Ministerial Level (MCM) will take place on October 5 – 6, 2021. The Meeting will be chaired by the United States, with Korea and Luxembourg as Vice-Chairs, under the theme of “Shared Values: Building a Green and Inclusive Future.”
The Ministerial Council Meeting 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.
Part I of the MCM took place virtually on May 31 and June 1, 2021, and marked the handover in leadership of the OECD, reflected on lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and shared priorities for the near-term recovery. Part II and its related events will shift the attention to addressing our medium- and long-term challenges, with a focus on the climate crisis and promoting the transition to net-zero to help build a green future, as well as on making the future more inclusive by promoting a digital transformation and creating opportunities for all. Building on our shared values – democracy, rule of law, human rights, and commitment to open and transparent market-economy principles and high standards in the digital economy – Members will adopt a new Vision Statement to guide the Organisation.
