In a letter to President Obama, Mr Gurría said Americans had shown their confidence in his leadership in his first four years at the White House.
He praised President Obama for taking control when the economy was on the brink of collapse, and for restoring the path towards stability and job creation. He added that President Obama has made important progress on health care, education and the advancement of minority rights.
“The OECD stands ready to continue supporting you and your ambitious agenda for reform and change,” Mr Gurría said.
