The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development has appointed a Swiss as president of its trade committee.

The Economics ministry said on Tuesday that 55-year-old Luzius Wasescha would replace the Swede, Arne Rodin. It's the second time a Swiss has held the post.

The committee is concerned with the coordination of OECD members' trading policies and meets three to four times a year.

Top of the OECD agenda at the moment is multilateral trade agreements and the dismantling of obstacles that hinder free trade.
