The MLI was developed by a group of over 100 countries and jurisdictions, including many developing countries. Developing countries have shown great interest in signing the MLI and have started their technical preparations to sign. Many of them however needed more time to complete the domestic procedures for Signatories. It is expected that many additional countries will sign the MLI by year-end, including a significant number of developing countries. The OECD has supported these countries in the completion of their domestic procedures and will continue to offer its support.
