The International Council of Securities Associations (ICSA) met with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for the first time in Paris in late September. ICSA’s delegation, led by its chairman, Pierre de Lauzun, held talks with Greg Medcraft, head of the OECD’s Financial and Enterprise Affairs Directorate, and his team. The aim was to gain a better understanding of the work being done by the OECD to identify potential cooperation opportunities. Director Medcraft explained the priorities for his directorate, which include blockchain, infrastructure financing and sustainable finance. Based on the discussions, ICSA can now determine how best it can contribute actively to the OECD’s work.
