Brazil has made significant progress over the last few years in strengthening economic performance and enhancing social development. In particular, the benefits of increased prosperity have been shared more equitably across individuals and social groups. To build on these achievements, further reforms will be needed to lay the foundation
of stronger, more inclusive and more sustainable growth in the years to come.

BRAZIL: an active key partner for the OECD
The OECD is proud to have Brazil as a Key Partner. Over the past two decades, Brazil has been a source of valuable policy experience, as it has moved up the ranks of the world’s largest economies. Most importantly, it has done so while tackling both poverty and inequality, something very few countries have previously achieved. While Brazil has maintained high levels of employment, growth has slowed down in recent years, underlining the need to boost productivity and cost competitiveness. This requires measures to address infrastructure bottlenecks, continue to raise education attainment and the performance of students, boost labour force skills, streamline the tax system and reduce regulatory complexity. For Brazil, as for many other major economies today, further economic and social progress implies continued efforts to “go structural, go social, go green and go institutional”. The Brazilian government has demonstrated strong commitment in facing these challenges and the OECD stands ready to support the related reforms. Our expertise in a wide range of policy areas and the strength of a network of global policy communities are all at Brazil’s disposal. Our partnership extends to many policy areas, and includes joint work on international fora, such as the G20. This brochure illustrates the mutually beneficial character of our co-operation, as we benefit from Brazil’s perspectives in finding joint solutions to common global challenges.Brazil participates actively in a number of key OECD Committees, as well as in various areas of OECD work, including our initiatives to reshape economic thinking (New Approaches to Economic Challenges, NAEC), and to foster inclusive and sustainable growth. It is now Vice-Chair of the Governing Board of PISA and of the OECD Steel Committee, and its leadership has also opened avenues of dialogue with the rest of Latin America. This year, for example, two important regional high-level meetings were hosted in Brazil in the field of skills development, which has encouraged other Latin American countries to participate in the third round of the adult skills survey, PIAAC.We look forward to strengthening and broadening this fruitful collaboration, to help design and implement better policies for better lives for all Brazilians. ANGEL GURRÍA,
OECD Secretary-General
