The OECD’s export credit groups (ECG and Participants)
The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) consists of 35 relatively rich countries and is best known for its statistics and comparisons among member countries on topics including development aid efforts and school pupil performance (PISA surveys). The OECD also prepares export credit statistics dealing with topics such as the ECAs’ business volumes, losses, products and trends, as well as financing risks in individual countries. These statistics are reviewed at meetings of the OECD’s export credit groups, which GIEK attends together with Export Credit Norway and the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries. In these groups, we also discuss the implementation and further development of applicable OECD rules and recommendations. To support this work and encourage ECAs to learn from one another, there are also separate expert groups focusing on pricing and social responsibility.
