Regional dialogue and peer learning

The OECD promotes policy dialogue between OECD and Eurasia countries, as well as among countries of the region, through country-specific work, peer review processes and knowledge sharing.

Eurasia Roundtable Logo

Held every year during OECD Eurasia Week, the OECD Eurasia Competitiveness Roundtable serves as a platform to: 

  • carry out peer reviews on competitiveness reform implementation at the country level;
  • exchange good practices between OECD members, Eurasia countries and partner organisations;
  • develop policy guidelines and recommendations;
  • monitor progress with the implementation of competitiveness reforms.

Country-specific support
