The OECD Tourism Committee helps member and partner countries develop policies that address major challenges faced by the industry (e.g. competitiveness, quality jobs and skills, innovation, travel facilitation, taxation), promotes an integrated governmental approach to tourism, contributes to improved measurement and analysis of tourism services (e.g. Tourism Satellite Account, competitiveness, impacts of tourism at regional level), and enhances international co-operation in tourism. Before joining the OECD, Dupeyras held a post at the French bank for the development of small and medium-sized enterprises. He is a visiting professor in tourism policy and tourism economics in various universities, notably Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne in France.
