The meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development concluded on Friday with the approval of a ministerial statement that includes a call to tackle false and misleading information spread by artificial intelligence. The statement also expressed serious concerns about economic coercion, such as restricting trade to put pressure on other countries, with China in mind.

The Council of Ministers meeting was attended by about 70 countries and regions, mainly the 38 OECD member states, including Japan, the United States and European countries. Japan chaired the meeting for the first time in ten years.

The ministerial statement welcomed policies against false and misleading information. At the same time, the OECD revised its international guidelines on AI, the AI ​​Principles, to include a new requirement for AI developers to tackle false and misleading information, with a focus on generative AI, which is rapidly advancing in technological innovation and proliferation.

The statement also included strengthening economic security cooperation. It stated that the countries would work together to secure sustainable and reliable sources of strategic materials, including critical minerals, and affirmed that they would jointly address policies and practices that distort fair competition in the market, in addition to economic coercion.

Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa said at a press conference after the meeting: “We want to create an environment in which people around the world can use safe, secure and reliable AI, and strongly promote its use.”
