Prepared by the OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (STI), the STI Review, published twice yearly, presents studies of interest to science, technology and industry policy makers and analysts, with particular emphasis on cross-country comparisons, quantitative descriptions of new trends and identification of recent and future policy problems. Because of the nature of OECD work, the STI Review explores structural and institutional change at global level as well as at regional, national and sub-national levels. Issues often focus on particular themes, such as surveys on firm-level innovation behaviour and technology-related employment problems.

Show Abstract /
Despite the regional and international discipline which has been established, industrial subsidies continue to play an important role in the policy mix of OECD governments. In an era of budgetary constraints and globalisation, their reduction and phasing-out remains a policy challenge in almost all OECD countries.
This special issue of the STI Review presents, from the perspective of national governments, the Commission of the European Communities, the WTO and the OECD, the policy approaches adopted to limit the trade-distorting potential of subsidies and to tackle public spending on industrial support programmes in the light of budget consolidation.
