OECD Eurasia Competitiveness Programme



The OECD Eurasia Competitiveness Programme (ECP) helps thirteen countries in Eurasia implement policies to enhance competitiveness and improve the business climate. Building on over 20 years of OECD engagement with the region, the Programme provides a network to:

  • strengthen policy dialogue between OECD and Eurasia countries, as well as among countries of the region and
  • serve as a gateway to broader OECD expertise.


Country-specific work is carried out in each of the thirteen countries covered by the Programme, complemented by peer reviews to foster exchanges of good practices:  

Afghanistan Georgia Mongolia Turkmenistan
Armenia Kazakhstan and the OECD Republic of Moldova Ukraine
Azerbaijan Kyrgyzstan Tajikistan Uzbekistan


Regional work fosters policy dialogue and peer learning among the countries of Eurasia and between the countries of the region and OECD members. These activities include: 

The work is discussed and disseminated through the Eurasia Competitiveness Roundtable, the platform for peer review and knowledge sharing on the implementation of reforms to strengthen competitiveness in the thirteen partner countries of the Programme. 

Countries typically go through two phases in their work with the Roundtable:

  • Peer Review: the country is examined by OECD and peer experts on a selected policy area.  A report summarizing OECD recommendations and an action plan is prepared for each country.
  • Monitoring: the country is re-examined three years after its initial Peer Review in order to assess progress in the implementation of the recommendations and to consider further steps forward. 
The Roundtable is held once a year in the context of OECD Eurasia Week.
