Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

SNB participation

Switzerland is a founding member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It works in the organisation's intergovernmental committees to promote the development of relations among the 36 member countries with regard to economic, social and development policies. Represented by the Confederation, Switzerland has a seat on the OECD Council, the organisation's highest decision-making body. Switzerland contributes to the OECD in accordance with the size of its economy, and participates in setting the programme of work and the annual budget.

The SNB participates in the Economic Policy Committee (EPC), the Committee on Financial Markets (CMF), and the Committee on Statistics and Statistical Policy (CSSP). On a political and academic level, the EPC and its working groups deal with current developments in the global economy as well as with structural policy.

The CMF analyses the latest developments in the international financial markets and examines regulatory issues. The CSSP drafts standards for the national accounts in coordination with other international organisations.

Country report on Switzerland's economic policy

Every two years, the OECD performs a detailed analysis of the economy of every member country, including Switzerland. The results are published in country reports.
