In view of the ongoing Novel Coronavirus outbreak, which the World Health Organisation has now designated a global health emergency, the OECD and the Government of Georgia have decided to postpone OECD Eurasia Week to a later date, still to be confirmed.

Ensuring that our delegates are safe is a responsibility that both we and the Government of Georgia take very seriously. We stress that this is a postponement rather than a cancellation. The OECD and the Government of Georgia are both committed to holding OECD Eurasia Week 2020 in Tbilisi, and the new dates will be posted here as soon as they are confirmed.

Policy Dialogue

OECD Eurasia Week includes several high-level policy dialogue discussions to share best practices and experiences in addressing common challenges in the region.
