The best approach when dealing with foreign bribery is the ethical universalism method. I think this method can be implemented with the organization’s code of conduct and various compliance training. Ethical Universalism can be applied to any industry. Ethical Universalism can transcend culture and MNEs to maintain these values. I think most of these ethical viewpoints might advocate criminalizing foreign bribery to view and comprehend the cultural environment of the country.

I think one setback is the host countries’ cultures where officials rely on bribes to get what they want. This is not an effective way for a company to enter the international market. This action can tarnish the reputation and brand recognition of its consumers. This can result In a loss of profits for the company that they may not be able to recover from
