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 an effort to better listen to citizens and businesses, the Spanish Government passed the “Law on transparency, access to public information and good governance” (“Transparency Law”) in 2013. This law improves and strengthens transparency in public activity as it develops obligations for all public administrations and public organisations to actively include public participation in the decision-making process. It also recognises and guarantees access to public information, which is regulated as a right of a wide subjective and objective scope. It develops, as stated in Article 105.b) of Spanish Constitution, the access of citizens to administrative files and records, except those affecting the security and defence of the State, the investigation of crimes and the privacy of individuals. Finally, the law promotes transparency in the public activity by ensuring that the public has the right to access public information and guarantee the regulations on good governance by creating a Counsel of Transparency and Good Governance.
