The OECD and INTERPOL signed, on 14 December 2020, a letter of intent expressing their common interest to explore opportunities to consolidate and deepen their cooperation.
The OECD Secretary-General, Mr. Angel Gurría, and the Secretary General of INTERPOL, Mr. Jürgen Stock, signed the letter of intent at a virtual ceremony on the margins of the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the signature of the OECD Convention.
The letter of intent paves the way forward for a stronger and more strategic partnership between the OECD and INTERPOL, in areas of common interest, including 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 Organisations in the framework of their G7 and G20 engagements and as regards addressing the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The OECD looks forward to taking this partnership forward and exploring the modalities for concluding a formal cooperation agreement with Interpol.
