The purpose of the meeting was to align the strategy of participation in the Tourism Committee of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and to address relevant issues, such as the partnership between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and MTur to change Brazil’s status as an observer to full member of the Organization.
“With this, we include Brazil in the preparation of OECD reports, generating relevant economic data and information on Brazilian tourism aimed at subsidizing the market and giving visibility to Brazil in OECD member countries,” said Viera.
The meeting was attended by Ambassador Carlos Márcio Cozendey, Minister Daniela Benjamin and Secretary Leandro Magalhães.
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) was created on September 30, 1961, succeeding the Organization for European Economic Cooperation, created on April 16, 1948. Currently, the organization is made up of 36 members. Brazil is one of the countries that requested to be part of the OECD.

The board is responsible for approving Brazil’s preparation, follow-up and membership strategy, as well as the communication policy process.
