Where we are
The City of Light
We are located in Paris, one of the world’s leading business and cultural centres. Its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world’s major global cities – a fitting location for the OECD.
An exciting place to be, this amazing city offers something for everyone. Paris provides a range of specialist international and bilingual schools to compliment its own French language schools, a highly rated health-care system and easy access to the rest of the world.
A space for dialogue
The Château de la Muette has been home to the OECD since 1961. Situated on the sophisticated west side of Paris, it is within walking distance of the Bois de Boulogne.
We are proud of our OECD Conference Centre where we welcome over 120 000 participants annually to OECD Committee meetings, Working Parties, Round Tables and flagship conferences such as the annual Ministerial Council Meeting, in a state-of-the-art fashion.
