Ahead of the Group of Twenty (G20) meeting in Brisbane in November, G20 engagement groups are calling for the countries involved to take strategic anti-corruption and integrity action.
Australia is the current chair of the G20, which was set up in 1999 in the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis. Australia’s host year will culminate in a Leaders' Summit in Brisbane on 15-16 November 2014.
G20 engagement groups—civil society (C20), business (B20), labour movement (L20), young people (Y20) and thinktanks (T20)—are recommending that anti-corruption measures remain at the forefront of G20 action plans.
The proposed 2014-2015 priorities include transparency of corporate ownership, foreign bribery and other corruption law enforcement and whistleblower protection.
