Economic globalisation has advanced rapidly over the past three decades; the spread of people and ideas has facilitated the dissemination of technological advances, which has been transformative. But in spite of the positives, the way globalisation has proceeded is linked to the stagnation of the well-being of those with lower incomes, in contrast to those at the top, who have benefitted most. Rising discontent has fuelled a backlash against this globalisation, and in some cases a rejection of multilateralism.
By kind invitation of the Rt. Hon. The Viscount Waverley, The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with Gabriela Ramos who is the Chief of Staff and Special Counsellor to the Secretary-General, OECD, and Sherpa to the G7 and G20. Ms Ramos will speak about the OECD’s role in the policy response and will outline the need for more inclusive growth and increasing productivity (and what that might mean for governments), the need to move away from the current economic model of “grow first, distribute later”, and the need to avoid a damaging retreat from economic openness.
Gabriela Ramos is the Chief of Staff and Special Counsellor to the Secretary-General, OECD, and Sherpa to the G7 and G20. Besides supporting the Strategic Agenda of the Secretary General, she is responsible for the contributions of the Organisation to the global agenda, including the G20 and the G7. A champion for gender equality, Ms Ramos has overseen the launching of the OECD’s Gender Strategy. In recognition of her efforts on inclusive growth and gender equality, Ms Ramos was awarded the Forbes Prize for Entrepreneurial Excellence in June 2017.
