Secretary-General Angel Gurría discusses the efforts of the OECD to support Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and other MENA countries to restore investor confidence, tackle unemployment and foster policy conditions for strong, sustainable and balanced growth.
Our contributions to the G20 anti-corruption work have spanned from strengthening enforcement of foreign bribery laws to drawing G20 principles on asset disclosure or whistleblower protection, and making public procurement cleaner and more effective to fight solicitation, said OECD Secretary-General.
The economic crisis that started in 2007 gave rise to a crisis of legitimacy and a widespread collapse of trust in markets, in firms, and in the governance of our economies. We need to build up that trust again and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention are essential tools for fighting bribery and promoting responsible corporate behaviour.
We have made some incredible progress from a time when bribes were considered just part of doing business and companies could claim them back as a tax deduction. But there is still a long way to go. One of our main challenges is ensuring enforcement, said OECD Secretary-General.

Openness is one of the key values that guide the OECD vision for a stronger, cleaner, fairer world. This is why the OECD welcomes the launch of the Open Government Partnership today and the efforts led by Presidents Obama and Rousseff to promote government transparency, fight corruption, empower citizens and maximise the potential of new technologies to strengthen accountability and foster participation in public affairs.
Combating bribery and corruption has become a top global priority, and it is central to our mission. We need to enhance our anti-corruption efforts, strengthen their coherence and improve cooperation with other important actors, like the legal profession practitioners, said Angel Gurría.
Se félicitant de la volonté politique forte du G20 de combattre la corruption, M. Gurría a rappelé que l'OCDE figure aux avant-postes de cette lutte grâce à l'élaboration de normes internationales dans le domaine des pots-de-vin, des marchés publics, des crédits à l’exportation, de l’aide internationale ou encore des paradis fiscaux.

Bid rigging costs governments and taxpayers billions of dollars every year. In 2011, the OECD will for the first time directly assist a member country, Mexico, as it implements tighter public procurement processes.
