The United States has endorsed Brazil’s bid to become a member of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the Brazilian government said in a series of statements Friday. In a statement, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said, “All 36 members now support our entrance into the OECD.” Brazil must still meet a stiff set of criteria to obtain final approval as a member. The President’s chief advisor, Onyx Lorenzoni, said the administration estimates it will take three years to reach 100% compliance and full membership. The U.S. confirmed its support for Brazil’s application at an OECD meeting in Paris on Thursday.
