Candidature of the Republic of Bulgaria for membership in the OECD
Accession to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is among the main foreign policy priorities of the Republic of Bulgaria.
On the 25th of January, 2022, the OECD Council decided to open accession discussions with the 6 candidates to OECD membersip, including Bulgaria.
With a view to improving the coordination and accelerating the preparation for prospective membership in the Organisation, in December 2017 an Interinstitutional Coordination Mechanism for accession of Bulgaria to the OECD was established.
Representatives of Bulgarian institutions, agencies and a number of experts work actively in the committees and working groups in which Bulgaria participates with the status of “Member”, “Participant” or “Guest”.
