The OECD Working Group on Bribery has, since 2013, repeatedly urged Poland to reform its laws to ensure it can effectively investigate and prosecute foreign bribery. Since then, the legislative changes to the Polish judicial system have raised further concern about Poland’s implementation of the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (Anti-Bribery Convention).
Poland must make urgent progress on carrying out key recommendations of the OECD Working Group on Bribery that remain unimplemented, more than four years after its Phase 3 evaluation in June 2013.
The current Polish framework for fighting foreign bribery is still inadequate to fully meet foreign bribery risks resulting from Poland’s growing economy, says a new OECD report.
The OECD and the European Investment Bank have agreed to share their expertise in support of economic co-operation and sustainable development. OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría and EIB President Philippe Maystadt signed a co-operation agreement to that effect today in Paris.
