(Paris) – Organised by the G20 French Presidency and the OECD, with the support of UNODC, “Joining Forces against Corruption – G20 Business and Government” concluded today at OECD Headquarters in Paris, . Bringing together over 350 participants from the private sector, business associations, international organisations and governments from G20 countries, the conference provided an opportunity to enhance ways that business and governments can work together to meet the goals set forth in the G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan, adopted by G20 leaders in Seoul in November 2010.

In the G20 Agenda for Action on Combating Corruption, Promoting Market Integrity, and Supporting a Clean Business Environment, G20 leaders pledged closer engagement with the private sector to examine best practices and other forms of business engagement in combating corruption.

The conference represented the first step in responding to the call to tackle corruption through stronger public-private partnerships. Participants discussed a range of topics including the challenges of anti-corruption compliance, fighting corruption in public procurement, sector-specific anti-corruption initiatives, and commercial practices most vulnerable to corruption. They also identified how businesses and G20 governments can further collaborate to advance anti-corruption policies and what roles public-private partnership initiatives such as the UN Global Compact can play.

“Now is the time to improve governance around the world by advancing voluntary approaches that reinforce and complement what governments do to improve corporate anti-corruption measures,” said Georg Kell, Executive Director of the UN Global Compact. “It is also critical that governments send clear signals that they want voluntary corporate efforts to succeed.”

A conference summary is available on the OECD website:
