About the OECD
The mission of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. It provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. The Organisation works with governments to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change, measuring productivity and global flows of trade and investment. To do so, the OECD also analyses and compares data to predict future trends, and sets international standards on a wide range of things, from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals.
