THE OECD PROVIDES A FORUM IN WHICH GOVERNMENTS AND STAKEHOLDERS CAN EXAMINE THE FACTS, COMPARE AND EXCHANGE POLICY-EXPERIENCES, IDENTIFY GOOD PRACTICES, AND PROMOTE EXPERT ADVICE AND GUIDANCE. CO-OPERATION, DIALOGUE, CONSENSUS  AND PEER PRESSURE DRIVE THE OECD AS IT SEEKS TO FULFILL ITS VISION OF A STRONGER, CLEANER, FAIRER WORLD ECONOMY AND SOCIETY. THE OECD SUPPORTS POLICY MAKERS, BY PROVIDING INSIGHTS ON BOTH SHORT AND LONG-TERM CHALLENGES, WHILE IDENTIFYING EMERGING ISSUES AND THE POLICIES NEEDED TO ADDRESS THEM.
