The roundtable will launch the OECD's Government at a Glance 2021, a flagship OECD report, which provides a comprehensive set of rigorous, internationally comparable data on government resources, activities and results in OECD countries and beyond. This year’s edition has a special focus on how governments in OECD countries have responded to the COVID-19 crisis. It shows that governments have reacted at speed and scale, but the crisis has revealed governance and delivery shortcomings. The crisis has also sharpened challenges for the future in terms of trust and its determinants and the functioning of democracies.
Kindly note that this event will begin at 14h45 Paris time (CEST).
