Roundtable on 20 years of the Anti-Bribery Convention


12 December 2017, 14:00-18:15  OECD Paris

What have been the achievements and challenges of the Anti-Bribery Convention? What are possible future goals and directions of the Working Group on Bribery to further implement the Convention? How has the Convention helped reduce the influx of bribes in major emerging economies? How is the absence of effective criminalisation of foreign bribery in certain countries still an impediment to effective international cooperation in foreign bribery cases? 


These questions and others will be debated at a roundtable discussion in Paris on 12 December 2017 on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the Anti-Bribery Convention. The roundtable will be hosted by the OECD Working Group on Bribery which which represents the 43 States Parties to the Anti-Bribery Convention.
