Global Irish @GlobalIrish

Great article by @OECDObserver on Dublin’s Silicon Docks and the thriving tech scene in Ireland - well worth a read http://www.oecdobserver.org/news/fullstory.php/aid/5442/Banking_on_Silicon_Docks.html   

Phillip Jones @chesterwriter

Just a coincidence that of the #OECD’s 34 #member states, 20 of them are also members of the #EU? Hardly #impartial observer then? #tainted

Sofia Falk @sofiafalk

When the general secretary of @OECD left the room, most of the male audience did as well...#IWD2016 #OECD

Judith bogner @judithbogner

I resonate with @OECD’s #BetterLifeIndex. It makes so much more sense than #GDP as measure of a country’s wellbeing http://wef.ch/1nNDqdG

John Devlin @jvdevlin

Great to be there tonight to see the @OECD go green for #StPatricksDay

James Murray @James_BG

Fascinating @OECD report dismisses argument environmental policies harm an economy overall http://www.businessgreen.com/bg/analysis/2450614/has-the-oecd-just-rubbished-the-carbon-leakage-argument   

WWFEU @WWFEU

Good to hear that tougher #environmental laws do not hurt export competitiveness - @OECD study http://www.oecd.org/economy/tougher-environmental-laws-do-not-hurt-export-competitiveness.htm    

Malene Rydahl @MaleneRydahl

The full transcript of my conference @OECD on #happiness inspired by the Danes ! Thank you @OECDObserver #bigday

an unpaid act @anunpaidact

@OECDObserver “underpaying or overpaying interns loses sight” of purpose of an internship. What about when they’re not paid at all like @UN?
