25/04/2016 – In December 2014, the OECD Working Group on Bribery in International Transactions expressed serious concerns about Argentina’s implementation of the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention (see report here). In order to urge Argentina to improve its performance, a high-level Working Group mission will visit Buenos Aires on 26-27 April 2016 and meet senior Argentine officials from the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, the Anti-Corruption Office, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship, federal judiciary, and representatives of the Argentine congress.
The Working Group on Bribery – made up of the 34 OECD Member countries plus Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Latvia, Russia and South Africa – is the Conference of Parties to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.
