ONE: "Speaking to a room of heads of states and ministers on Thursday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her platform as chair of the OECD Ministerial Meetings to place a special spotlight on development. In her speech, Clinton described how the OECD can foster a new partnership between donors and developing countries, which relies on mutual accountability, and focuses reforms in the areas of taxes, transparency, and corruption.

A true development partnership based on mutual accountability means that both parties have responsibilities to uphold in contributing resources, setting priorities, and delivering results. And Clinton stressed how developing countries can take ownership of their development by increasing their ability to collect taxes, fight corruption, and be transparent about their budgets and spending."
