The Governance of Inclusive Growth

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.




In 2013, the Latvian Government launched a suite of reforms that seek to improve citizen engagement, public service quality management and improve regulations by involving the public in reducing administrative burden and improving public services in Latvia. The reform package, called “Let’s Share the Burden Together!” first established an easy-to-use website created to submit ideas to reduce administrative burden or improve public services. The proposals are reviewed every week by the State Chancellery. It is then forwarded for evaluation to the ministry responsible for the issue and the submitter is informed on the progress of their proposal. The results of this campaign are reported to the Prime minister twice per year during Cabinet of Ministers meetings.
