New OECD Video "Trade in Raw Materials"
Industrial raw materials are essential to everyday life - for instance, did you know that your mobile phone is made using 50+ different minerals and metals?
The OECD's newest video "Trade in Raw Materials" demonstrates how overly restrictive export policy in the raw materials sector can have adverse effects on economic growth and development. It also highlights the successful experience of countries such as Australia and Chile, illustrating how mineral-rich economies can best capitalise on their resources.
