The Center works on a daily basis with the US and Canadian government, business, and labor community. We also work closely with civil society and the media to provide trusted analysis, testimony, data and information related to the range of the OECD's policy work. The Washington Center also is a resource for OECD publications and subscriptions to OECD iLibrary.

Mission: For 50 years, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has been one of the world's largest and most reliable sources of comparable, independent statistics and economic and social data. The OECD promotes policies that seek to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world and achieve "Better Policies for Better Lives."
