The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is a unique forum where the governments of 30 democracies with market economies work with each other, as well as with more than 70 non-member economies to promote economic growth, prosperity, and sustainable development. The OECD provides a setting where governments can compare policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, identify good practice and coordinate domestic and international policies. For more than 40 years, the OECD has been a valuable source of policy analysis and internationally comparable statistical, economic and social data. Most of OECD research is published and is available at the OECD online statistical portal.
The Office of Trade Policy Analysis (OTPA) is the US delegate to the OECD’s Committee on Industry Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE). As head of the US delegation to the CIIE, OTPA coordinates USG input and participation in the CIIE and represents the United States at official committee events. The CIIE focuses on drivers of industrial productivity and related policies, factors affecting the performance of (large and small) firms and (manufacturing and service) sectors, and patterns and levels of industrial globalization.
The current work program of the CIIE includes studies on counterfeiting and piracy, entrepreneurship, global supply chains, green growth, innovation, outsourcing, sustainable manufacturing, and services benchmarking.
