Finland celebrates 50th anniversary of OECD membership
The year 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Finland's membership in the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD). Finland joined the OECD on 28 January 1969. In the course of the four decades, Finland has transformed from an agricultural country into a frontrunner in digitalisation. Through its membership, Finland has been able to measure itself against other member countries and to make use of the recommendations issued by the organisation. Furthermore, membership in the OECD has established Finland's position among other market economies.
