Who drives the OECD’s work?

Who drives the OECD's work?

OECD website, 2014.

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.
