Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
OECD was established in Paris in 1961, with Switzerland as a founding member. The international organisation now has 38 member states. Its objective is to contribute to the expansion of world trade on a multilateral basis, thereby promoting optimal economic development, high employment and rising living standards in its member states.
Standing Parliamentary Delegation for Participation in OECD Activities (PD-OECD)
The PD-OECD is expected to represent the Federal Assembly twice a year in the various OECD
events aimed at national parliaments. Participation in these events will give the delegation the opportunity to address OECD-specific issues at an early stage, so that it can share its knowledge with the various parliamentary committees in the event of rapid international developments.
