A.   The Committee on Industry, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (hereinafter “CIIE”) is renewed with the following revised mandate:

I.   Objectives

1.   The overall objective of the CIIE shall be to assist governments in designing and implementing industry, innovation and entrepreneurship policies that can promote growth in output, incomes and welfare through sustainable improvements in productivity and competitiveness. In fulfilling this objective, the CIIE shall take account of fundamental changes in the world economy that include the globalisation of markets, the growing importance of intangible assets, the need for growth and fiscal adjustment in many economies, the rise of emerging market economies and the long-term challenges posed by climate change, resource scarcity, demographic and other social changes.

2.   Against this background, the CIIE will be responsible for analysing and developing policy recommendations that require co-operation and consultation among Members and Partners, focusing on policies that:

i)Adapt to the globalisation of production across Members and Partners and draw benefits from globalisation, including the participation of different types of firms (SMEs, MNEs, start-ups) in global value chains;

ii)Foster structural change, including policies to adapt to the changing nature of manufacturing and services in a global economy, and in which new sectors of the economy are able to develop and established sectors are able to modernise;

iii)Improve the conditions for entrepreneurship, firm entry, growth and exit, technology diffusion, and efficient resource allocation, contributing to enhanced job creation, and productivity growth;

iv)Address the specific needs of SMEs, based on a sound understanding and articulation of the contribution of these firms to innovation, growth, and employment;

v)Enhance business investment in intangible assets, including human capital, and foster innovation in business plans and strategies, with particular emphasis on non-technological innovation, new business models, and the increasing digitalisation of the economy;

vi)Help create a business climate in which firms can respond to societal and environmental challenges (e.g., social inclusion, climate change, sustainable development).

3.   The CIIE will pay particular attention to highlighting the benefits of economic developments and reforms, based on the sharing of best practice policy lessons and the identification of underlying barriers to reform. The role of ex ante and ex post policy evaluation in understanding the causal impacts of policies is at the forefront of the work of the CIIE. This can involve a variety of methodologies, including early small-scale pilot studies to help in policy design.

II.    Coordination arrangements

   Considering the central role of innovation as a catalyst for economic development and growth, the CIIE shall work closely with the Committee for Scientific and Technological Policy and the Committee on Digital Economy Policy to ensure that the Committees are fully aligned and share expertise and outputs in pursuit of their respective objectives.

   The CIIE shall maintain close working relationships with other relevant bodies of the Organisation, in particular the Economic Policy Committee and the Economic Development Review Committee, to complement and support analysis underway, discuss industrial aspects of questions raised and, where appropriate, undertake joint projects.

   The CIIE shall co-operate with other international and regional organisations active in relevant policy fields, and will consult with representatives of industry, business, trade unions and public interest groups, where appropriate.

B.   The mandate of the CIIE shall remain in force until 31 December 2021.
