The OECD's regional approach in Central and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia aims to address a number of common issues relevant for all countries in these regions still grappling at various degrees of intensity with the transition from centrally planned to market economies.

For many of these countries the transition process is not yet complete and they continue to struggle to implement macroeconomic stabilisation and basic institutional and policy reforms.

The OECD aims to support institution building and structural reform by promoting OECD best practices and facilitating information sharing. Policy dialogue focuses on topics such as anti-corruption, pension reform, financial sector reform, corporate governance and tax policy. The OECD also aims to encourage co-operation on specific issues within the sub-regions (in particular Central Asia and the Caucasus) for both economic and political reasons.
