Palazzo Buontalenti

Improving the public sector’s effectiveness is central to Italy recovering from the COVID-19 crisis and returning to sustained, inclusive growth, especially in the context of the Recovery and Resilience Plan. The political economy of reforming the public sector is complex, however, in Italy as in many other countries.

This joint OECD-EUI seminar will present the findings of the 2021 OECD Economic Survey of Italy on strengthening the public sector’s effectiveness. The event will discuss what interventions the public sector makes, how it does it, and who delivers goods and services. A closing panel discussion will analyse lessons learned from the Covid-19 crisis and how they might lead to different and more lasting reform of the public sector.
