The Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities of the OECD has published a new newsletter showcasing a series of new publications. These include:
This report looks at how regions and cities across the OECD are progressing towards stronger economies, higher quality of life for their citizens and more inclusive societies. This edition presents regional and metropolitan updates for more than 40 indicators to assess disparities within countries and their evolution since the turn of the new millennium.
Entrepreneurship is important for innovation, job creation and economic growth. The Better Entrepreneurship Tool, designed in partnership with the European Commission, aims to help policy-makers support the development of social enterprises and entrepreneurship by under-represented groups such as youth, women, migrants and the unemployed.
The newsletter also highlights several forthcoming events, including:
- 1st OECD Roundtable on Cities and Regions for the SDGs, 7 March 2019, Paris, France
- 4th Meeting of the OECD Champion Mayors for Inclusive Growth Initiative, 18 March 2019, Athens, Greece
