Who drives the OECD's work?

The Council is the highest body within the OECD, and adopts work programmes,
budgets and legal acts. It is composed of a representative of each member country and
the EU, although the EU representative does not have a vote. It meets regularly at the
level of ambassador and once a year at ministerial level. The Secretariat, headed by a
Secretary-General and composed of approximately 2 500 staff members (including
more than 700 economists, lawyers and scientists), supports the work of the
organisation with research, analysis and proposals. Approximately 250 Committees and
other working bodies provide a forum for dialogue, discussion and debate among
members on the different topics of interest to the organisation.
