The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is currently represented by the group of 37 countries of the world with a strong economy that respects the values of democracy and market economy. The mission of the OECD is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD is a unique forum where governments work together to address the economic, social and environmental challenges of globalisation. The OECD is also at the forefront of efforts to understand and to help governments respond to new developments and concerns, such as corporate governance, the information economy and the challenges of an ageing population. The Organisation provides a setting where governments can compare policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, identify good practice and work to co‑ordinate domestic and international policies.

The OECD member countries are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Columbia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. The European Union takes part in the work of the OECD.

By entering the OECD on 14 December 2000, the Slovak Republic gained the opportunity to participate in the committees, working groups and expert fora to discuss a wide range of  policies. Accession to the OECD has also provided the Slovak Republic with opportunities to share the latest surveys, statistics, studies and analyses carried out on the OECD's soil and use them in developing their own policies and innovative strategies to ensure the sustainable development, prosperity and increasing the competitiveness of the Slovak Republic.
