For over 25 years, the OECD and Southeast Asia have developed an enduring and mutually beneficial relationship. They have been working closely to facilitate policy dialogue, the dissemination of good practices and mutual learning in areas such as investment, education, inclusiveness, sustainable infrastructures, good governance, access to market and fiscal policy.
Today, Indonesia is a Key Partner of the Organisation and Thailand is soon to have a specific OECD Country Programme. Other countries in the region benefit from different forms of engagement with the Organisation.
In 2007, OECD Ministers identified Southeast Asia as a region of strategic priority for the Organisation. In 2014, the OECD Southeast Asia Regional Programme was launched at the OECD Ministerial Council Meeting. The Programme aims to support domestic priorities, policy reforms and regional integration efforts in Southeast Asia.
