The CEO of International CEOE, Marta Blanco, will participate in the Annual Meeting of Business Consultations at OECD with the ambassadors accredited to the OECD, which will be held next Monday, the 13th in Paris. During his visit, he will also meet with the Spanish ambassador to the OECD, Manuel María Escudero; with the ambassador of Spain in France, Fernando Carderera; and with various representatives of the OECD and the CEOE homologous employer, MEDEF. This last meeting with the French business confederation (MEDEF) will follow up on the visit at the end of October of the president of said institution, Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux, to Spain, during which he met with Spanish businessmen at CEOE, in order to reinforce business cooperation between both countries and talk about matters of common interest to companies.

The Annual Consultation with the OECD, officially called the Liaison Committee Meeting (LCM), is chaired by the Secretary General of that Institution, Ángel Gurría, and addresses the business priorities that involve the OECD. Both Gurría and the president of Business at OECD, Phil O'Reilly, will present the objectives of the day and, later, the director general of Confindustria, Marcella Panucci; and AT&T senior vice president Karim Antonio Lessina and USCIB CEO Peter Robinson, who will make a joint presentation.

After the first session, moderated by the Secretary General of Business at OECD, Rusell Mills, three simultaneous workshops will take place on the value that markets open to society contribute to trade, investment / taxes and development; how society faces the opportunities that arise in the future: digital transformation, employment and skills; and lay the foundations for prosperous societies: health, environment and energy.

Value of open markets

The CEO of International CEOE, Marta Blanco, will moderate the first of the tables, related to the value that markets open to society contribute to in relation to trade, investment / taxes and development. To do this, questions regarding how people in your country see the economic and social benefits of open markets will be addressed; what specific policies are applied in your country or your company to promote these markets and which do you consider to be the best sources of evidence for the OECD to reaffirm these benefits.

The CEO of Irish Business and Employers Confederation (IBEC), Danny McCoy; the co-chair of the Digital Business at OECD Committee, Julie Brill; the chairman of the Investment Committee, Winand Quaedvlieg; the Chairman of the Fiscal Committee, William Morris; and the vice president of the Commerce Committee, Marco Felisati. A small debate will also be held in which the ambassadors, representatives of the OECD and Business at OECD, such as Ángel Gurría and Phil O'Reilley, will also participate.
