DThe OECD Forum, a major event in the international calendar, is a summit which brings together multiple interested parties such as the directors of companies and associations, personalities from civil society, ministers and many managers from international organisations to debate the key issues of the 21st century.

This year, the OECD particularly wanted to tackle the subject of post Kyoto and the need to implement an economic framework to combat climate change.

More specifically covering the political dimension of the climate change problem, the Sovereign Prince highlighted the weight of public opinion and the important role of politicians in boosting the development of technologies which combine respect for the environment while protecting economic growth.

The Secretary-General of OECD, Angel Gurría, and the Executive secretary of the UNFCCC, Yvo de Boer along with Phil Goff, Minister of Trade for New Zealand are also speaking on this theme.

On this occasion the Prince had a thirty minute one-to-one meeting with the Secretary-General of OECD, Mr Angel GURRIA.
