The aim of the OECD’s Global Relations is to create a community of economies which are committed to best policy practices and to finding joint solutions for common challenges, guided by the Organisation’s evidence-based policy advice and standards. This engagement serves a mutual benefit, giving a platform to learn from each other’s policies.

Partners & regions
