What is the OECD?

The OECD groups 30 member countries in a forum to discuss, develop and refine economic and social policy. Members compare experiences, seek answers to common problems, and work to coordinate domestic and international policies to help members and non-members deal with an increasingly globalised world. The organisation is internationally recognised as a reliable and comprehensive source of comparable economic and social data.

The OECD consists of like-minded countries, with the 30 member states all sharing a commitment to a market economy. The organisation began in 1961 as a group of European and North American nations and has since expanded to include Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Korea and four former communist nations, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and the Slovak Republic.

The similarity of OECD nations, combined with the availability of statistical information, makes the OECD group a sound basis of comparison for New Zealand.
