Croatia is ready to embark on the process of accession to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic-Radman told OECD Secretary General Mathias Cormann during their meeting in Paris on Wednesday.

Grlic-Radman thanked Cormann for his personal involvement in inviting Croatia to open accession talks, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs said in a press release.

The Croatian government has set up a negotiating team for OECD accession, including representatives of all relevant state administration departments.

Unity and mutual support between the OECD member states and candidate countries is of particular importance in these challenging times of the Russian aggression in Ukraine, Cormann said.

He expressed satisfaction with the opening of talks with Croatia and the great progress it had made.

The OECD secretary general and relevant services presented future steps in the accession process and announced possible adoption of an accession plan for each candidate country in the coming months.
