The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) promotes policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. Its objective is to encourage an open debate and a shared understanding of critical global issues, identify and address emerging and long-term challenges, and to provide independent and evidence-based analysis and recommendations designed to improve the quality of people's lives.
Established in 1961, the Organisation provides not only a forum, data and policy advice for the governments of its 35 members and partner economies, but works with governments, businesses, and labour and civil society organisations to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change, to share experiences, and to find common solutions to global problems. The OECD measures productivity, trade flows and investment; collects, analyses and compares data to predict future trends; and develops international standards on a wide range of topics including education, innovation, investment, public governance, and development.
