Paris, 25 February 2022


The Marshall plan, crucial to rebuilding Europe after World War II, led to the creation of the OECD, which ultimately showed that economic cooperation and a resolute defense of democracies are fundamental to prosperity.


We condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people. The mission of the OECD as a pathfinder and promoter of policies that preserve peace, democracy, rule of law, and individual liberties is more important than ever. Our business advocacy will be relentless to uphold these principles and support the OECD as we
face challenging times.
