This is the tenth annual progress report on OECD Anti-Bribery Convention enforcement by Transparency International, the global coalition against corruption. The OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions, adopted in 1997, requires each signatory country to make foreign bribery a crime for which individuals and enterprises are responsible. The Convention is a key instrument for curbing the export of corruption globally because the 41 signatory countries are responsible for approximately two-thirds of world exports and almost 90 per cent of total foreign direct investment outflows. The OECD Working Group on Bribery, which represents the 41 Parties to the Convention, conducts a follow-up monitoring programme under which 9-10 countries are reviewed each year.

Transparency International’s annual report on foreign bribery enforcement presents an independent assessment on the status of enforcement in all of the Parties to the Convention with the exception of Latvia, where the Convention entered into force only in 2014. In our methodology section we address the differences between our methodology and that of the OECD Working Group on Bribery.
