Think of a theme, from ageing to trade, and the new OECD website will take you on a tour of the subject. The second-generation website offers thematic access to subjects and issues dealt with at the OECD as well as a new statistics portal, revamped newsroom, and improved search engine.
And to keep you up to date there is MyOECD: just pick the subjects that interest you and you will receive free e-mail alerts to new information and publications on those themes. “The OECD’s knowledge base and expertise are now fully accessible to the international community thanks to this new portal,” says the OECD’s secretary-general, Donald Johnston. “We are making strides towards our objectives of transparency, timeliness of information and customised service”.
“The new OECD statistics portal provides a one-stop-shop for statistics and indicators that gives governments, institutions and citizens a unique facility for analysing key policy issues using reliable data sets,” says the organisation’s chief statistician, Enrico Giovannini.
