Israel's Accession Agreement to the OECD


Further to the invitation by OECD countries for Israel to become a member of the Organisation on 10 May 2010, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría signed an Accession Agreement with the Israeli Ambassador to France Daniel Shek in Paris on 28 June 2010.


This agreement defines the obligations of OECD membership and includes Israel’s specific remarks on acceptance of OECD legal instruments. Israel’s OECD membership will become official once all necessary formalities have been completed.


During his remarks after the signing of the agreement, Secretary-General Angel Gurría said that Israel's accession will reflect a more open, more plural and inclusive OECD. He added that the experience of the OECD as a forum where countries can come to share best practices, improve and coordinate policy-making and develop international standards to address international issues, will be a richness for Israel (read ).
