The OECD Working Group on Bribery will release a review of Argentina’s efforts to fight foreign bribery on Friday, 24 March 2017 at 11.00 CET/07.00 Buenos Aires time.
The OECD Working Group on Bribery in International Transactions has repeatedly over 15 years urged Argentina to strengthen its efforts to fight corruption and foreign bribery. During that time, the Working Group has recommended that Argentina change its laws to hold companies liable for corruption and to extend jurisdiction to Argentines who commit foreign bribery overseas.
A high-level Working Group mission will visit Buenos Aires on 26-27 April 2016 and meet senior Argentine government officials.
