About Centre

OECD/KOREA Policy Centre is an international cooperation organisation established by a Memorandum of Understanding between the OECD and the Government of the Republic of Korea.


Major functions of the Centre are to research international standards and policies on international taxation, competition, public governance, and social policy sectors in OECD member economies and to disseminate research outcomes to public officials and experts in the Asian region.


In pursuit of this vision, the Centre hosts various kinds of educational programs, international meetings, seminars, and workshops in each sector and provides policy forums presented by experts at home and abroad.


OECD/KOREA Policy Centre will spare no effort to serve as a leading organisation in the Asian-Pacific region to spread advanced systems based on OECD policies.


Thank you.
