Bribery in international business

2018 OECD Consultation on Fighting Foreign Bribery


 11 December 2018 09h30-13h00 OECD Conference Centre, Paris

The OECD Working Group on Bribery (WGB) holds consultations with business, trade unions and civil society every year. These consultations provide an opportunity for the WGB to receive inputs from all the stakeholders that have an interest in its work programme. The consultation will consist of a two hour general consultation on selected issues proposed by consultation partners and by WGB delegations, and will end with a one hour special consultation on ‘Transparency in concluded foreign bribery cases: How much and what kind?’.  


Launch of "Foreign Bribery Enforcement: What Happens to the Public Officials on the Receiving End?"

The consultation will also provide an opportunity to launch an OECD study that explores whether there is a "flip side" to enforcement actions that ended in sanctions for the supply-side of a foreign bribery transaction. It focuses on what happened on the receiving end of this transaction. That is to say, were the public officials in the demand-side country also sanctioned or otherwise disciplined?
