INTERPOL and OECD to identify areas for enhanced cooperation

14 December 2020

LYON, France - INTERPOL and the OECD have signed a letter of intent expressing a shared interest to identify areas for increased cooperation.

INTERPOL Secretary General Jürgen Stock and OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría signed the letter at a virtual ceremony on the margins of the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the signature of the OECD Convention.

Areas identified for enhanced cooperation include artificial intelligence, environmental security,
corruption and financial crimes, cyber and cyber-enabled crimes, and crimes related to mineral
supply chains.

The letter builds on recently intensified strategic consultations between the two Organizations in the framework of recent engagements with the G7 and G20, and addressing the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

A first step towards a formal cooperation agreement, INTERPOL looks forward to further developing its partnership with the OECD.
