An Overview of Country Initiatives

image of The Governance of Inclusive Growth

Achieving inclusive growth relates closely to how governments work and how policies are designed, implemented, delivered and evaluated. This publication presents an overview of country initiatives concerning inclusive growth in 39 OECD member and partner countries. It was prepared in the context of the OECD Public Governance Ministerial Meetings held in Helsinki, Finland, on 28 October 2015. The publication focuses on four core issues: engaging with citizens and businesses for more inclusive policies and services; innovative policy design for inclusive growth; improving the delivery of services for and with citizens; and, strengthening accountability through better performance management and evaluation.




The Government of the Republic of Korea has continued to work on strengthening its legal and institutional foundation to foster participatory decisionmaking. For example, in March 2015, the Government revised the Administrative Procedure Act, which serves as the framework act concerning civic participation. The revision of the Act established a legal foundation for web- and mobile-based policy debates, taking into consideration the emerging communication channels (web or smartphones) which are characterised by their nature of two-way and real-time communication. Web- and mobile-based policy debates were adopted during the previous administration (between 2003 and 2007), but they did not have any legal foundation back then.
