­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­The OECD is an international organisation. Originally it was established after the end of World War II as the OEEC (Organisation for European Economic Co-operation) in order to coordinate the Marshall Plan. In 1961, it changed to the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) with a transatlantic and global outlook.

The mission of the OECD is to promote political measures achieving sustainable economic growth and employment and contributing to the development of the world economy as well as sound economic expansion and growth in world trade on a multilateral, non-discriminatory basis.

Member states participate in a number of thematic committees, working parties and subgroups. The EU Commission also participates in the work of the OECD.

The Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries of Denmark is represented in the OECD Committee for Agriculture and the OECD Fisheries Committee as well as related sub-committees and working parties.

In the area of agriculture and fisheries, the OECD is focused on a number of key topics, such as agriculture and environment, agricultural productivity and innovation, climate change and food systems and fisheries and aquaculture.
