Role and Function
Korea, through its Permanent Delegation to the OECD and visiting delegates, has been extensively involved in OECD work and activities, participating in most of the OECD committee meetings.
The role of the Korean Permanent Delegation is to facilitate the partnership between Korea and the OECD, to help Korea make the best use of OECD work, and to promote Korea’s interests in a balanced way. The Mission also ensures that any research carried out at the OECD is effectively disseminated and shared among relevant Korean authorities, the public, and other interested stakeholders.
Building upon its dynamic experience of political, economic, and social development, Korea has played a bridging role between member and non-member countries, and has contributed to improving the relevance of the OECD in a rapidly changing global landscape.
The Korean Delegation publishes a weekly OECD Policy Briefing, which has become its flagship publication. This briefing introduces the most updated policy issues currently being debated in the OECD and is disseminated to more than 3,000 readers, including policy makers. Currently, it is published only in Korean and can be easily download from the Delegation’s website (oecd.mofa.go.kr).
