The OECD has been working in close partnership with Ukraine to support its ambitious reform agenda for more than 30 years.
In February 2022, the OECD Council unanimously condemned Russia’s large-scale aggression against Ukraine and upgraded co-operation efforts to provide greater support during wartime, while bolstering the government’s Recovery Plan.
The OECD will continue to work closely with the Ukrainian government to help it strengthen its institutions and put in place foundations for a democratic, sovereign and prosperous future.
Destroyed lives, destroyed homes and destroyed infrastructure are the immediate consequences of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
The war also imperils the world's economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic: inflation, food security, energy security and further supply-chain pressures are among the many challenges policy makers worldwide must tackle.
As the global ramifications of the invasion take hold, the OECD is bringing together its latest insights, analysis and data on the policy challenges ahead.
Ukraine's ambitious regional development reforms since 2014 have overhauled the country's governance structures, which have been key to its regional and municipal resilience in 2022.
While Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine has severely undermined progress and exacerbated existing territorial disparities and governance challenges, continued reform will be vital to Ukraine's post-war reconstruction efforts.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke to the OECD Ministerial Council Meeting on 9 June 2022. He stressed that Ukraine is fighting to defend democracy and rule of law, common values for Ukraine and OECD members alike, and welcomed OECD’s strong support for Ukraine.
