The High Level Mission will visit Tokyo on 29-30 June 2016, and meet senior Japanese officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Ministry of Justice, National Police Agency and National Tax Agency.
The Working Group on Bribery – made up of the 34 OECD Member countries plus Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Latvia, Russia and South Africa – is composed of the Parties to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.
