The National Association for Business Economics (NABE) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will cohost a global economic symposium at the Paris headquarters of the OECD, May 23-24, 2016.

The goal of the Symposium is to strengthen linkages and networks between leading business economists in the United States and their colleagues across the Atlantic through a dialogue and roundtable that will foster debate and the exchange of frank views on economic issues of mutual concern.

This is the second such symposium to be co-hosted by NABE; the first was conducted May 2015 in Munich, Germany in conjunction with the Deutsche Bundesbank.  The 2017 symposium will be cohosted by the Bank of Italy in Rome (dates TBD).
