The OECD is a global economic forum working with 36 member countries and more than 100 emerging and developing economies to make better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The Organisation provides a unique forum in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.
The Global Relations Secretariat (GRS) supports the implementation of the Secretary General’s strategic orientations by co-ordinating the Organisation’s relations with partner countries and with other international organisations. It advises the Office of the Secretary-General and other OECD Directorates on how to strengthen co-operation with key partner countries, regions and organisations. GRS also serves the OECD External Relations Committee (ERC), working with members to help them reach consensus on global relations priorities and ensuring that relevant partners are effectively engaged in the Organisation’s work.
The Eurasia Division co-ordinates the OECD’s relations with countries in the region and, as part of the OECD’s Global Relations Secretariat (GRS), serves the OECD’s External Relations Committee. It directly supports reform efforts through the activities of the OECD Eurasia Competitiveness Programme and oversees country-specific activities under the OECD-Ukraine Action Plan and the OECD’s Memorandum of Understanding with Kazakhstan. Regional activities include the regular Small Business Act for Europe assessment of countries in the European Union’s Eastern Partnership region and support for enhancing competitiveness in Central Asia. The Division also undertakes joint projects with other OECD Directorates on such issues as connectivity, investment policy and decentralisation.
