With rising awareness of the need for consumer protection in OECD countries, the Committee on Consumer Policy held its first meeting in 1970. Since then, the Committee has worked with OECD governments, observers, civil society and business representatives to develop a broad range of consumer policies. Today, in the midst of ongoing digital transformation, increasing globalisation and a growing need for more sustainable consumption, it is time to consider whether consumer policy is ready for the consumer marketplace of the future.

This conference will consider these issues, and bring together experts from government, business and civil society to celebrate 50 years of consumer policy at the OECD and the Committee on Consumer Policy. This public event will provide OECD countries and others with ideas for unlocking the full potential of the consumer marketplace of the future. Participants are invited to help shape a vision for the future of consumer policy through a series of moderated panel discussions.
