Ministerial Meeting on Responsible Business Conduct

A dedicated Ministerial Meeting on Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) will take place at the Headquarters of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris on 14-15 February 2023 under the broad theme 'Promoting and enabling responsible business conduct in the global economy'.

The meeting will be co-chaired by France and the United States, with Canada, Chile, Japan, Morocco and the United Kingdom as vice-chairs. The Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Simon Coveney, will attend this meeting and will chair a breakout session on 'opportunities on responsible digitalisation'.

The meeting will provide ministers with an opportunity to have a strategic reflection on the role of RBC as a cornerstone of the international rules-based trade and investment system, across several thematic and policy areas, and as a baseline expectation for business in the global economy.
