Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

What is OECD

The OECD is a platform for 38 member countries to discuss economic policies and improvement areas. Most of the FATF member countries overlap with OECD’s. Additionally, the FATF Secretariat is housed administratively at OECD. 

The organization’s work on combating corruption and tax fraud is of particular interest to the FATF, primarily because it assesses the link between international bribery and money laundering.
