Bribery and corruption

Initiatives with non-member economies


Technology advances and globalisation are changing the world economy. The OECD works with non-member countries to combat corruption in all its forms.

As major emerging economies move from the “demand” side to the “supply” side of international business transactions, it is more important than ever to ensure zero tolerance for bribery, and a level playing field for all companies.

Work with non-members is also increasingly important in the context of OECD enlargement.

SIGMA Programme

Sigma, a joint initiative of the European Union (EU) and the OECD, supports around 30 countries in the Central and Eastern European and Mediterranean regions by assessing reform progress and identifying priorities for reform; assisting in the process of institution-building and setting up legal frameworks; and facilitating assistance from the EU and other donors by helping to design projects and implement action plans.

ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia-Pacific

Under the joint leadership of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the OECD, 28 countries and economies of the Asia-Pacific region have committed to action against corruption by developing and implementing the Anti-Corruption Action Plan for Asia and the Pacific.

Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia

The Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia supports the countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia by providing a regional forum for the promotion of anti-corruption activities, exchange of information, elaboration of best practices and donor coordination.

Latin America

This programme is designed to strengthen implementation and enforcement of regional anti-corruption conventions and to promote integrity in Latin America. Latin American parties to the Anti-Bribery Convention – Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico - play a leading role as a natural bridge between the OECD and the Organization of American States.

Middle East and North Africa (MENA)

The OECD conducts a structured policy dialogue with MENA countries on issues related to corruption and public and private sector integrity within the framework of the MENA-OECD Initiative on Governance and Investment for Development. TheRegional Task Force on Responsible Business Conduct promotes responsible business conduct in the MENA region, focusing particularly on fighting corruption, education and employment standards, environment and health.
