About

International trade is a motor of the global economy and represents increasingly large volumes of exchanged goods, services, and financial flows. Yet, corruption in the trade chain hampers economic activity and entails important health and safety risks for societies. Thus, anti-corruption measures protecting the cross-border trade chain not only produce advantages for the economy in general, but also for private companies, the public sector and society as a whole.

The 2016 edition of the OECD Integrity Forum will put the spotlight on this hidden tariff, bringing stakeholders around the table to identify how they can efficiently and effectively mitigate the challenges of corruption in trade through policy actions and cooperative anti-corruption efforts.

programme

High-level speakers will tackle the issues of corruption that impact global trade, informal sessions will provide an opportunity to examine solutions in greater depth, authors, academics and students will share their findings during poster presentations, and lunch debates and roundtable discussions will give you the opportunity to share your experience directly with your peers.

In addition to trade-related sessions, the programme will also feature pressing integrity issues, such as the refugee crisis or the growing demand for evidence-based policy recommendations.
