Better Regulation in Europe: Austria This report maps and analyses the core issues which together make up effective regulatory management for Austria, laying down a framework of what should be driving regulatory policy and reform in the future. Issues examined include: strategy and policies for improving regulatory management; institutional capacities for effective regulation and the broader policymaking context; transparency and processes for effective public consultation and communication; processes for the development of new regulations, including impact assessment, and for the management of the regulatory stock, including administrative burdens; compliance rates, enforcement policy and appeal processes; and the multilevel dimension: interface between different levels of government and interface between national processes and those of the EU.

This renewed buoyancy is projected to continue in , as faster domestic demand offsets a renewed slowdown in exports, stabilising the current account surplus at around 5.

This report is the second in a series of OECD country reviews that look at governance and public management issues from a comprehensive perspective. These reviews help countries to identify how reforms can better reinforce each other in support of overall government objectives. They also examine reform strategies that have worked in other countries and provide advice as to which reforms can be appropriately adapted to a given country.

Kemp, A. On one side, there is the general Jewish population with poverty and employment rates similar to those of OECD countries. On the other, there are Arabs and ultra-Orthodox Jews, or Haredim, who have large families, poor educational outcomes and low employment rates. As a result, just over half of Arab and Haredi families live in poverty. Almost half of all children entering primary school in Israel come from one of these two groups, so profound policy changes are needed to prevent future generations of Arabs and Haredim from being scarred by the disadvantages these population groups face today.
Progress has been made in many of these areas. New legislation and initiatives have been introduced. The challenge is how to make reform work in practice.

Yoo, B. It also has a highly educated labour force— as signalled by its impressive PISA performance and exceptionally high rates of tertiary level graduation—with a strong interest in science and technology. However, a number of bottlenecks persist. These include a relatively weak SME sector and weak performance in services, as well as lagging capacities to conduct leading-edge research in many areas. Furthermore, Korea faces numerous threats in the mediumterm, notably increased levels of competition from China and other newly-industrialising economies, the lowest fertility rate in the OECD, an ageing society and a continuing high dependency on imports of natural resources, particularly hydrocarbons.
A recovery is under way, led by private domestic demand.
