OECD calls for equitable vaccine distribution

Member nations of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development have issued a statement calling for the equitable distribution of coronavirus vaccines.

The OECD wrapped up a two-day ministerial meeting on Wednesday in Paris.

Ministers discussed the need to accelerate vaccine deployment to address the economic disparity caused by the pandemic.

The statement also calls for international cooperation to tackle climate change.

The ministers supported a global minimum corporate tax rate of at least 15 percent and new rules on taxing multinational corporations.
