Delegation of Switzerland to the OECD

The Permanent Delegation to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris promotes Switzerland's interests in this context. The Delegation's website features information on the organisation and its activities as well as information on the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Like all member countries, Switzerland has a permanent delegation to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris. Represented by the Swiss Ambassador, it 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 helps determine both the work programme and annual budget.

The Swiss delegation follows the work of the OECD in its various institutions and plays an important role in liaising between the Swiss authorities and the OECD Secretariat. It represents Switzerland's interests in multilateral negotiations, identifies areas in which Switzerland can benefit from the OECD and raises awareness of OECD recommendations in Switzerland.

C’est avec une grande tristesse que nous avons appris le décès d’un ouvrier qui travaillait sur le chantier de la rénovation de la Délégation Suisse près l’OCDE.

Une enquête est en cours et à ce stade nous ne pouvons pas donner plus de précisions sur les circonstances de l’accident.

La Délégation Suisse près l’OCDE adresse ses plus sincères condoléances à la famille et aux proches du défunt.
