11/01/2013 – The OECD will take part within the Gaidar Discussion board in Moscow 16-19 January and can launch the Russian model of its award-winning Higher Life Index [Russian version: http://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org/ru/].
The Gaidar Discussion board, organised yearly by RANEPA (Russian Presidential Academy of Nationwide Financial system and Public Administration), gathers heads of regional and federal authorities, monetary and enterprise leaders, prime managers, consultants, analysts and scientists from world wide. The Discussion board is open to the press.
The OECD’s Higher Life Index in Russian might be formally launched at 09.30 (Moscow time) on Friday 18 January on the Gaidar Discussion board (see the BLI brochure in Russian). An interactive demonstration of the index might be accessible in the course of the Discussion board.
The Higher Life Index is an modern on-line software that lets folks visualise and examine a number of the key components – like training, housing, setting – that contribute to well-being. The index permits customers to see how international locations carry out in line with the significance that they provide to every of 11 matters that make for a greater life. In contrast to conventional OECD analyses, the OECD doesn’t rank international locations within the Higher Life Index – customers of the positioning do the rating. Already accessible in English and French, the index has been translated into Russian with the assistance of RANEPA.
