Abstract:Corruption is a key threat to good governance, democratic processes and fair business competition. Fighting corruption and promoting good public governance are among the main priorities of the OECD. In addressing corruption and good governance, the OECD takes a multidisciplinary approach which includes fighting bribery of foreign public officials, combating corruption in fiscal policy, public and private sector governance and development aid and export credits. The OECD is a leader in setting and promoting anti‐corruption standards and good governance principles. It ensures their implementation through peer reviews and monitoring of member states and by providing policy‐makers with analysis and recommendations. It also helps non‐members to improve their domestic anti‐corruption and good governance efforts by fostering sharing of experience and analysis and through regional programmes.
