  • Description

    Australia today (June 7) became the 23rd full member of the international Organisation For Economic Co-operation And Development at a ceremony in the OECD's Paris headquarters. The Organisation, with member nations like the United States, Japan and major European countries, organises international trade agreements and money transactions. It also assists Western aid to developing countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

    It is an important international step for Australia which will now be able to take part in trade arrangements with the OECD's member states -- especially now that Britain, a traditional market for Australian exports, may join the European Economic Community and re-arrange its trade ties.
