IBLF Global concluded a third year supporting the B20 Anti-corruption Task Force. This year the focal point was on implementation and impact. Amongst the key deliverables are a guidance for companies on Beneficial Ownership, a Customs Toolkit and the Anti-corruption Toolkit for SMEs.
The G20 leaders communique
had a paragraph on anti-corruption (see section 16: “We remain committed to building a global culture of intolerance towards corruption through effectively implementing the 2015-2016 G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan”). You can find alongside the communique all the documents put out by the G20 ACWG, including those specifically highlighted in the Turkish Presidency’s Summit Fact Sheet:
G20 High-Level Principles on Integrity and Transparency in the Private Sector
G20 Principles for Promoting Integrity in Public Procurement
G20 Anti-Corruption Open Data Principles
SMEs Anti-Corruption Education Tool Kit
In the Accountability report of the G20 ACWG 2015, the B20 and the work with the private sector are specifically mentioned. Self-reporting and private sector guidance are mentioned as topics for future follow-up.
In the spirit of this year’s implementation theme, our Task Force produced two Toolkits: one for SMEs (by IBLF Global and TEID) and one on Collective Action for combating corruption in customs (by TEID and Basel Institute on Governance) . These will be ready for distribution soon. For more information on the SME Toolkit, visit [URL to SME Toolkit page], and for the Customs Agents Toolkit contact Tayfun Zaman.
