2007-2009 - 18 OECD committees reviewed Slovenia's policies. These reviews assessed the country’s position on OECD legal instruments and the degree of coherence of policies with those of OECD member countries, in what amounts to a sort of 360 degree in-depth review of the candidate country.

30 November 2007 - The OECD Council approved the Roadmap for the accession of Slovenia to the OECD Convention.  An accession roadmap sets out the terms, conditions and process for OECD accession. Pictured: Janez Sumrada, Slovenian Ambassador to France, receives the roadmap from OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría.

16 May 2007 - The OECD Council at Ministerial level adopted a resolution to open discussions with Slovenia for its membership of the Organisation, along with Chile, Estonia, Israel and the Russian Federation.
