Going for Growth

image of Economic Policy Reforms 2019

The Going for Growth report, updated biennially, looks at structural reforms in policy areas that have been identified as priorities to boost incomes in OECD countries and selected non-OECD economies (Argentina, Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation and South Africa). The selection of priorities and monitoring of reform actions are supported by internationally comparable indicators that enable countries to assess their economic performance and structural policies in a wide range of areas. In addition to detailed policy recommendations to address the priorities, as well as a follow-up on actions taken in the recent years, the report includes individual country notes and, since 2017, a focus on inclusive growth. The 2019 report also includes a special chapter on reform packages that boost growth while ensuring environmental sustainability, a new extension of the Going for Growth framework.

Overview of 2019 Going for Growth Priorities

Slowing growth and increasing global uncertainty should not divert policy makers’ attention from longer-term objectives of improving incomes and well-being. Addressing such long-term objectives requires implementing key structural reforms. This chapter presents an overview of the Top 5 reform priorities and recommendations for OECD member and key non-member states. Two cross-cutting themes can be identified: improving the equality of opportunities for workers and firms and securing the environmental sustainability of gains in growth and well-being. Country-specific information supporting this chapter is available in the country notes (Chapter 4).
