 Colombia signs the Anti-Bribery Convention

11/12/2012 - Colombia will become the 40th Party to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention on 19 January 2013. OECD Deputy Secretary-General Rintaro Tamaki, speaking at a ceremony marking Colombia’s accession in Paris with Colombia’s Minister of Justice Ruth Stella Correa, said:

“Bribery distorts markets and increases the cost of doing business. This month marks the 15th anniversary of the OECD’s Anti-Bribery Convention, the first and only legally-binding international instrument to focus exclusively on active bribery in business. Colombia’s joining the Convention sends an important signal to governments and business in Latin America of the importance of working together to fight corruption.”
