"A conference of ministers will be held in Paris at the end of May and we would really want and plan to be invited for membership at the event. We have done major work, the dynamics is positive, Lithuania looks very good in the process. (...) The finish line is near and I truly hope that this task, which is one of the priority tasks for our country, will be achieved, and the date – I will repeat myself – is the end of May," Linkevičius told Žinių Radijas news radio on Wednesday morning.

OECD currently includes 35 countries with high level of economic development. Lithuania was invited to launch the OECD accession process in June 2015.
