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 Turkish Government has used participatory decision-making mechanisms in various fields, including taking the opinions of stakeholders in preparing strategic plans and performance programmes, establishing city councils in local governments, consulting with relevant parties in the process of drafting the legislation, the Prime Ministry Communication Centre, the application “Ask the President”, receiving opinions through the website of Turkish Grand National Assembly and through certain websites for the works on the new constitution, and other websites belonging to the public institutions designed to receive individual opinions and suggestions. For example, the Prime Ministry Communication Centre is a sophisticated public relations service through which citizens can submit requests, complaints, notices, opinions and proposals directly to the Prime Ministry or to other relevant authorities with the help of Prime Ministry by means of various communication channels (Internet, phone, letter, fax or in person). In addition, some individual initiatives will be discussed below.
