About OECD and NCPs
The OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) promotes policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems.
Within the OECD, the Investment Committee is responsible for developing instruments and policies on international investment, of which the OECD Guidelines are one part. The Investment Committee interprets and implements the 1976 Declaration and Decisions on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises, of which the Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises is a part.
All the OECD member governments who adhere to the OECD Guidelines committed to establish an active National Contact Point.
Today, 34 OECD member countries and 12 non-member countries already set up NCPs.
