Interface between Education and Economic Development

A Ministerial Round Table was held on the theme of Education and Economic Development on October 19th and 20th. More than 100 ministers of education and another 250 observers participated in the meeting, which built upon two previous Round Tables focused on education quality (in 2003) and Education for All (in 2005). This Round Table concentrated on the key issues at the interface between education and economic development. It sought to identify new approaches and to elicit fresh ideas, to provide impetus for future national policies and strategies, and to give orientation to UNESCO’s action and priorities in this field.
