On 4th October, Air Cargo World reported that the paper was produced by FIATA’s Advisory Body on Legal Matters.  It recommends adoption of clear rules on sensitive issues like gift-giving, facilitation payments and employment of third-party service providers. Recommended processes to deal with bribery solicitations from public officials are also included to help FIATA members in such situations.
