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.



United States

The President has driven the federal government to use an approach that focuses on innovation and improvement, not just compliance. From the first days in office, he has asked agencies to develop clear goals that matter to citizens, ensures there are regular reviews of progress using data and evidence, and is transparent about progress to the public. The United States has provided some specific examples of ways this work is being carried out in agencies and how it is leading to measurable improvements in the way government operates.
