This part of the report consists of three chapters.
Chapter 1 provides general information about the conduct of the
inquiry, its background, and the scope and structure of the report.
Chapter 2 examines Australia's international foreign bribery
obligations and the way in which they have been implemented through domestic
law. It then outlines recent developments in anti-foreign bribery legislation
before looking at relevant reports examining the effectiveness of Australia's
foreign bribery framework.
Chapter 3 discusses the different roles of government
departments and agencies in identifying and investigating instances of foreign
bribery. It also considers the shortcomings of Australia's enforcement record
in this area, and examines the adequacy of some of the government's recent
initiatives to address the problem.
