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 Netherlands believes that establishing a better connection with citizens is one of the necessary dimensions of modernisation. This requires that the state develops an information society that is characterised by less hierarchical relations between government and citizens. Society is becoming a network in which citizens increasingly take initiative and the government is one of the actors in this network. Citizens want a say in public policy making and government should connect to initiatives in society. Therefore, a more equal information system for citizens is crucial. Since government is an important supplier and user of information, new policies regarding openness, transparency and interaction are needed.
