As Secretary-General of the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) since 2006, Angel Gurría has firmly established the Organisation as a pillar of the global economic governance architecture including the G7, G20 and APEC, and a reference point in the design and implementation of better policies for better lives. He has broadened OECD’s membership with the accession of Chile, Estonia, Israel, Latvia and Slovenia, and has made the Organisation more inclusive by strengthening its links with key emerging economies. Under his watch, the OECD is leading the effort to reform the international tax system, and to improve governance frameworks in anti-corruption and other fields. He has also heralded a new growth narrative that promotes the well-being of people, including women, gender and youth, and has scaled up the OECD contribution to the global agenda, including the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Assistant Director General on Social and Human Sciences at UNESCO & former OECD Chief of Staff, OECD
Gabriela Ramos is Assistant Director General on Social and Human Sciences at UNESCO. Previously, she served as OECD Chief of Staff and Sherpa to the G20 and in this capacity supported the Secretary General’s strategic leadership and ensured that the Organisation delivered on its mandates. She was responsible for the contributions of the OECD to the global agenda, including to the G20, G7, and APEC. She also oversaw the Global Relations Secretariat, which works with over 100 countries around the world. Her work as Sherpa contributed to the Leaders’ commitment to the G20 Brisbane gender target in 2014 and the creation of the W20. She has been key in delivering major OECD contributions and international standards to this agenda, including on tax transparency, artificial intelligence and data, excess capacity, tracking trade and investment measures, climate and growth, among others. In 2019, she launched the Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG) platform, endorsed by the French G7 Presidency, bringing together 40 major multinational companies committed to reducing inequalities. She has championed the OECD’s work to put people at the centre of policy-making through the provision of targeted policy advice in partnership with the European Union, the Inclusive Growth Initiative, and New Approaches to Economic Challenges (NAEC). She has advanced OECD work on gender equality, the well-being framework, and children. Most recently, she published a NAEC report entitled Systemic Thinking for Policy Making.
