Qatar participates in Mena-OECD ministerial conference


(MENAFN - Gulf Times) The State of Qatar participated in the Ministerial Conference for the Middle East and North Africa and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (Mena-OECD), which was organised by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Initiative for the Middle East and North Africa Region on Governance and Competitiveness for Development, in cooperation with the government of Tunisia, under the title "Designing a Roadmap to Recovery in the Middle East and North Africa" via visual communication technology.
Qatar's delegation was led by HE Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the French Republic and Qatar's representative to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Sheikh Ali bin Jassim al-Thani.
The conference focused on strategies to ensure comprehensive recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic. It brought together representatives from the governments of the Middle East and North Africa, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, regional partners, international organisations, the private sector and civil society.
The conference culminated in the adoption of a Ministerial Declaration on Governance and Competitiveness, which set out guidelines and mutual commitments for cooperation between the governments of the Mena region and the OECD from 2021-2025.
It should be noted that in 2005 the General Secretariat of the OECD launched OECD Initiative for the Middle East and North Africa Region on Governance and Competitiveness for Development to facilitate cooperation between the Organisation and the countries of the region to promote sustainable growth policies.
It is worth noting that the State of Qatar is a member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Initiative for Governance and Competitiveness in the Mena region, and it is also a donor within the framework of the Deauville Partnership, which was launched by the Organisation for the Arab countries in transition.
The State of Qatar also participates in many committees and bodies of OECD as it is a member of the Development Assistance Committee, the Directorate for Financial and Enterprise Affairs concerned with the erosion of the tax base and the transfer of profits, and the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. It also participates in programs led by the organisation, such as the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the International Network on Financial Education.
