OECD – CDEP Expert Meeting to Hold in Paris

The Committee on Digital Economy Policy (CDEP), affiliated to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), will hold its expert meeting- on March 29-April 1 in Paris, France- to finalize the preparations of CDEP Ministerial Meeting scheduled to be held in June 2016 in Mexico.

The meeting will discuss the third draft of the Ministerial Declaration that will set out the public policy objectives for taking full advantage of the digital economy. Discussions will also tackle the updated versions of background reports and proposed papers.

OECD was established in 1961, and includes 34 member states. OECD aims to assist states to increase their economic growth, employment rates and the trading volume between member and non-member states. Egypt joined OECD as a permanent observer at the ad hoc committees of the Organization in 2007.

OECD plays an important role in the ICT sector service through the preparation of studies and research that help governments in comparing different policy experiences and find solutions to common problems. This is in addition to its role in coordinating the domestic and international policies of countries and identifying good practices.
