Angel Gurria. OECD: Europe must step up structural reform

Mar 25: Despite the current financial crisis, countries must speed up structural reform to face the situation better, according to Angel Gurria, secretary general of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development). He says European living standards remain below those of the US because there are "easy ways out of the job market". He tells Scheherazade Daneshkhu, FT Paris correspondent, that European countries must get more people to work and lower the barriers to entry.
