News Brief: Estonia Becomes OECD’s 34th Member

In December, Estonia deposited its instrument of accession to the OECD Convention, thereby becoming a member of the organization.  Estonia was invited by OECD countries to open negotiations for membership in May 2007.  This means that the Estonian Employers’ Confederation (ETTK) is now officially a full BIAC Member Organization.   “ETTK joins the BIAC membership at a crucial time in which the global economy is facing unprecedented challenges,” BIAC said in a statement.  “The need for greater international cooperation is therefore of fundamental importance for a return to sustainable economic growth, and BIAC is delighted to be able to work closely with the Estonian business community in this effort.”
