Publication of OECD reports as part of the joint EU-OECD project on the transformation of the economies of the EU ORs

As part of the project “Transforming the economies of the EU’s outermost regions: fostering learning and making the most of global interconnection”, the OECD has published a set of reports aimed at providing an overview of the potential of the outermost regions to participate in global value chains, by identifying the five main relevant value chains (blue economy, renewable energies, innovation, cultural and creative sectors, agri-food) and by presenting the trends and prospects for the ORs.

These documents are part of the joint EU-OECD project on transforming the economies of the EU ORs, which aims to foster learning and make the most of global interconnections, funded by the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission

Five guidance documents (in English and French) can be downloaded from the OECD website:

  • Innovative agri-food industries in the EU’s outermost regions
  • Internationalization, specialization and technological collaboration in the EU Outermost Regions: an analysis based on patent data
  • Innovative oceans: drivers of internationalization for the EU’s outermost regions
  • Make renewable energies drivers of competitiveness in the outermost regions of the EU
  • Leverage cultural and creative sectors for the development of the outermost regions of the European Union
