The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has reappointed Angel Gurria as secretary-general. Gurria’s current five-year mandate expires on June 1, 2011.

The decision reflects OECD members’ support for Gurria’s vision to make the organization a more open, inclusive and relevant body, a news release from the group states.

The decision by the group’s governing council shows the “high regard” member countries have for Gurria’s “energetic leadership,” said Eduardo Ferro Rodrigues, dean of the council and Portugal’s ambassador to OECD.
