Russian visit

OECD Observer

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov discussed areas for further co-operation with the OECD during a visit to OECD Secretary-General Donald Johnston in Paris in July.

According to Russian press sources, Mr Kasyanov also said his country would be interested in joining the OECD after Russia has become a member of the World Trade Organisation.

The OECD’s programme with Russia is the organisation’s largest with a single non-member country and the OECD issued its fourth Economic Survey of the Russian Federation in February 2002.
