​At this year’s OECD Ministerial Council Meeting on 30-31 May, HMG was represented by The Rt Hon Mel Stride MP, the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, and Baroness Fairhead, Minister of State at the Department for International Trade. UK officials worked hard alongside representatives of the other 34 OECD Members to agree a joint statement. Whilst the UK was ready to join consensus on the final draft of the text issued by the Chair, the text did not meet consensus and no Ministerial Statement was adopted.
