Labour and Employment Ministerial Meeting

High-Level Policy Forum

Ahead of the Ministerial Meeting, the OECD will host a High Level Policy Forum on 14 December 2021, at the OECD Headquarters in Paris, France. The Forum will inform the discussion on how to move beyond the COVID-19 crisis and build back an inclusive labour market by focusing on questions related to changes in the workplace in a post-pandemic world, as well as the opportunities and challenges posed by progress in the field of artificial intelligence and their interaction with the labour market. The Forum will facilitate a lively and free-flowing debate between over 300 participants, through interactive interfaces and innovative discussion formats. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with each other and speakers in an informal setting. The discussions from the Forum will inform the Ministerial discussion, as well as national public debates, and feed into the OECD’s work programme.
