BusinessNZ Chief Executive Phil O’Reilly has been elected Chair of the Business and Industry Advisory Council (BIAC) to the OECD.
The BIAC is the voice of business at the OECD – the world’s foremost provider of integrated statistics and fact-based policy recommendations. The BIAC network includes national business, industry and employer associations from OECD members and observer countries, as well as international sector-specific associate experts.
Mr O’Reilly said it was an honour to serve the BIAC, whose advocacy was vital for growth and employment internationally, and a great opportunity for New Zealand business to contribute to this work.
Mr O’Reilly has been a member of the Board of the BIAC for three years. He will continue in his role as Chief Executive of BusinessNZ in addition to serving as BIAC Chair.
