This is very good news if Estonia accept this invitation to the club. OECD is one of the most western and credible organisation globally now.

It is very very good idea to join in to this western style organisation nowadays. Reply to the comment answer

What concrete things does OECD do? I tried to find out, but couldn't really find anything, just a lots of talk. For all I know, joining the OECD could be a bad deal.

There are lots of institutions that have lost their purpose, but still keep on living and sucking taxpayers' money from the member states. Two examples: Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the Nordic Council.

Many European country would save a lot of money by being a member of only the most important organizations. No need to join everything. Reply to the comment answer

Many such member organisations are now seeking to increase their membership base to support their ballooning expenses - relatively high salaries, undeserved staff benefits, central Paris location costs etc. Instead of earning their keep by creating new services and selling them they find the easier route of increasing membership.
OECD used to be a useful organisation in the past. Some of their activities are still relevant. But can Estonia afford the membership now given other urgent priorities ? Thete are costs - tangible and intangible that such membership requires. Perhaps later when time and conditions are better for Estonia and OECD has carried out its own reforms.
