Following the decision, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė is to sign on May 31 an OECD accession agreement, which will then be sent to the Seimas for ratification.

Lithuania started its OECD membership negotiations three years ago and officially finalized the talks in April.

Lithuania is set to become the 36th member of the OECD. Estonia and Latvia joined the so-called club of successful economies earlier.
