The OECD and Peru: A mutually beneficial relationship
Peru is one of the most active Partner countries. Peru was amongst the first countries to engage with the OECD through an OECD Country Programme, which was built around five key areas: economic growth; public governance, anti-corruption and transparency; human capital and productivity; and environment. The Programme comprised policy reviews, implementation and capacity building projects, participation in OECD Committees and adherence to selected OECD legal instruments.
To co-ordinate the relationship, the OECD’s Global Relations Secretariat develops and oversees the strategic orientation of this relationship and ensures that the dialogue remains focused and forward-looking. This results in a mutually beneficial relationship. The review and evaluation procedure allows for the sharing of OECD standards and best practices with Peruvian authorities, and the identification of areas for future reforms. Peru values the opportunity to discuss major policy issues and challenges in a multilateral context and to learn from the experiences of OECD countries facing similar challenges in many areas. In turn, this dialogue enriches the OECD’s knowledge and policy advice, and benefits OECD members and non-OECD economies by enabling them to acquire a better understanding of Peru.
