November 17, 2021. Lima, Peru.- Foreign Minister Oscar Maurtua de Romaña appeared before the Special Commission for Monitoring Peru's Incorporation into the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) of the Congress of the Republic, where he reported on the progress and benefits generated by our link with this international organization.
During his speech, the foreign minister affirmed that Peru's aspiration to become a member of the OECD is a political will of the State, formulated in 2012, which is part of the efforts to improve the formulation and implementation of public policies that contribute to raising the well-being and living conditions of Peruvians.
"It is worth noting that access to the OECD is not an end in itself, but part of a process that seeks to have an efficient State with quality services in education and health; and that contributes to closing the gaps of structural inequality, with a view to inclusive and environmentally sustainable development with a citizen-centered approach," he said.
Maurtua emphasized that the deepening of this relationship and the eventual incorporation of our country will allow us to continue with the implementation and monitoring of the recommendations for institutional strengthening, the improvement of regulatory frameworks and good practices in services.
As Peruvian advances to become a member of the OECD, the foreign minister highlighted the implementation of the "Programa País" in the period 2014-2019.
Likewise, the adoption of the Anti-Bribery Convention and the signing of the Convention to prevent tax evasion and avoidance.
