A mutually beneficial relationship

Peru is amongst the first countries to engage with the OECD through an OECD Country Programme. Launched in December 2014, the Programme was built around five key areas for Peru: economic growth; public governance, anti-corruption and transparency; human capital and productivity; and environment. The Programme comprises policy reviews, implementation and capacity building projects, participation in OECD Committees and adherence to selected OECD legal instruments. 

This Country Programme has been highly effective in supporting Peru’s reform agenda. As an example, in December 2016, the government enacted 29 legislative decrees that implement OECD Recommendations and other policy standards. These included reforms in areas such as environment, waste management, transparency and exchange of information in tax matters, regulatory policy, cross-border bribery, integrity and rural and urban development. On 14 October 2016, OECD Secretary General Angel Gurría and President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski of Peru opened a Peru-OECD Forum, which discussed the key outcomes of the 2015-2016 Country Programme, including four policy reviews (Multidimensional Country Review of Peru, Public Governance Review of Peru, Territorial Review of Peru, and Skills Beyond School - Vocational Educationand Training Review). Through the Country Programme, Peru has also taken an important step in its relationship with the OECD by adhering to selected OECD legal instruments, such as the Anti-Bribery Convention

To co-ordinate the relationship, the OECD’s Global Relations Secretariat develops and oversees the strategic orientation of this relationship and ensures that the dialogue remains focused and forward-looking.

This results in a mutually beneficial relationship. The review and evaluation procedure allows for the sharing of OECD standards and best practices with Peruvian authorities, and the identification of areas for future reforms. Peru values the opportunity to discuss major policy issues and challenges in a multilateral context and to learn from the experiences of OECD countries facing similar challenges in many areas. In turn, this dialogue enriches the OECD’s knowledge and policy advice, and benefits OECD members and non-OECD economies by enabling them to acquire a better understanding of Peru.



“The OECD and Peru engaged in a fruitful dialogue on the direction and design of public policies, and we are extremely encouraged by the results to date. Our objectives in the Peru Country Programme are in line with those of President Kuczynski and his government, and have the main goal of improving public policies for more inclusive growth. We are encouraged by the commitment of the Peruvian government to collaborate with the OECD, and expect this fruitful relationship to continue and expand in the coming years.”
