Going for Growth is the OECD’s regular report on structural reforms in policy areas that have been identified as priorities to boost incomes in OECD and major non-OECD countries (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa). Policy priorities are updated every two years and presented in a full report, which includes individual country notes with detailed policy recommendations to address the priorities. The next full report will be published in 2015.

This interim report takes stock of the actions taken by governments over the past two years in the policy areas identified as priorities for growth. This stocktaking is supported by internationally comparable indicators that enable countries to assess their economic performance and structural policies in a wide range of areas.

Reducing regulatory barriers to competition: Progress since 2008 and scope for further reform

This Chapter reviews the stance of regulation affecting competition in product markets of OECD and selected non-OECD countries. Based on the up-dated and revised set of indicators of product market regulation (PMR), it first provides an overview of the nature and extent of regulatory barriers to competition and reviews the areas where most progress has been achieved since 2008 in lowering these barriers. It then identifies areas where the scope for further reforms remains substantial. The PMR update reflects the stance of regulation at the start of 2013 and does not incorporate changes made since then in countries that have implemented reforms.
