Bilateral Trade Unit publishes information on the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) initiated a Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Officials in 1997.
This Convention is aimed at reducing corruption by encouraging sanctions against bribery in international business transactions, carried out by companies based in Convention Member Countries. This Unit has been involved in Ireland’s awareness raising obligations with the Irish development agencies and with Irish trade and professional organisations which interact with Irish companies operating abroad.
Details are set out in the brochure produced by this Unit:
Further information on the OECD Convention and of the wider Irish Government involvement in this process, is explained on www.anticorruption.ie.
