A strong business delegation will participate in the OECD Integrity Forum on April 19-20, which this year will focus on Global Trade Without Corruption. The Forum will bring together different policy communities as well as the private sector, civil society organizations and academia, and will encourage discussion on key issues, such as preventing corruption in customs, protecting supply chains, improving business in emerging markets and countering illicit trade.
The Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD policy group leadership and experts will also be represented as speakers at the Forum. The BIAC Task Force on Anti-Bribery/Corruption will organize a preparatory meeting on the evening of April 18. BIAC will furthermore participate in the Working Party of Senior Public Integrity Officials and in a Symposium on Building integrity for inclusive growth: translating the vision into action which will take place during the OECD Public Governance Committee meeting the same week.
Back-to-back with the Forum, the OECD is organizing a seminar on Enhancing Integrity for Business Development in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region on April 18 to identify good practices in improving business integrity and actions required to level the playing field for companies, and identify priorities for the OECD MENA work going forward.
