The Business at OECD Consumer Policy Committee promotes sound industry–led regulation that enables consumers to make informed and conscious decisions, and encourages businesses to compete, innovate and grow without unnecessary restrictions. As digital innovations bring greater choice and convenience to our economies, it works to ensure that OECD and policy makers identify policy options so as to fully seize the benefits of digitalisation for innovation and growth, while effectively addressing the challenges related to the digital transformation. Consumer issues related to COVID-19 may be addressed across the projects.
