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 conflict bite, the OECD brings together its latest insights, analysis and data to shed light on the policy challenges ahead.
The OECD presented six key policy responses at the Ukraine Recovery Conference in Lugano on 4 & 5 July 2022, co-hosted by Switzerland and Ukraine – where Secretary-General Mathias Cormann joined Ukraine Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and others to discuss the best ways forward to bolster Ukraine’s recovery, reconstruction and reforms.
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.
