Director of Public Affairs and Communications
Anthony Gooch is responsible for developing and implementing OECD’s public affairs, communications & engagement strategies, engaging globally with all non-governmental stakeholders on all areas of public policy. He co-ordinates the OECD’s major international public communication efforts to address OECD priorities. Most recently, this includes efforts to contribute to tackling the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. Longer-term initiatives include the OECD’s effort to overhaul international tax standards in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis to establish fairer tax systems to close down tax havens and ensure multinational companies pay their fair share of tax in the context of the digital economy (BEPS). Anthony is the Director of the OECD Forum which gathers leading policy makers and shapers across the globe to address the key issues on the international agenda. Building on its success, the Forum created an online community: the Forum Network.
