In conjunction with the Annual Meeting for National Contact Points , the OECD held a Corporate Responsibility Roundtable on "Enhancing the Role of Business in the Fight against Corruption - Making the Most of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises".
The Roundtable was structured as follows:
- Session I: A review of recent developments in current business practices in the fight against corruption;
- Session II: Governments and business - Forming effective alliances in the fight against corruption;
- Session III: The contribution of the OECD Guidelines as an anti-corruption instrument.
The meeting was attended by six recognised anti-corruption practitioners as well as by the National Contact Points (offices set up to promote the Guidelines in each of the 37 adhering countries) and by delegates of the OECD's Working Group on Bribery. The six invited speakers represented the business, trade union and NGO communities.
