This publication is based on an exceptional event which brought together civil society from the poor countries and OECD experts. The first-hand expertise of civil society is a priceless asset for understanding the everyday effects of economic change. It emerges from this book that globalisation can have a positive impact in poor countries, but only if policies encouraging a more equitable distribution of human and physical resources are adopted. Furthermore, countries in which infrastructures and skills are underdeveloped will need to continue protecting vulnerable sectors and communities, but will have to accept that such protection can only be transitional. Improvements in national governance can contribute to the positive impact of globalisation, but OECD member countries must also recognise the need of poor countries for a level playing field.
