What is OECD

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. The common thread of OECD´s work is a shared commitment to market economies backed by democratic institutions and focused on the wellbeing of all citizens. Along the way, it also sets out to make life harder for the terrorists, tax dodgers, crooked businessmen and others whose actions undermine a fair and open society.

The 35 Member countries span the globe, from North and South America to Europe and Asia-Pacific. They include many of the world’s most advanced countries but also emerging countries like Mexico, Chile and Turkey. Argentina has a longstanding relationship with the OECD, dating back to the early 1990s, and it is seeking to become a member of the organization.

OECD is focused on helping governments around the world to:

  • Restore confidence in markets and the institutions that make them function.
  • Re-establish healthy public finances as a basis for future sustainable economic growth.
  • Foster and support new sources of growth through innovation, environmentally friendly ‘green growth’ strategies and the development of emerging economies.
  • Ensure that people of all ages can develop the skills to work productively and satisfyingly in the jobs of tomorrow.
