Bribery and corruption

Greece-OECD project: Technical support on anti-corruption



About the project

The Greek government is prioritising the fight against corruption and bribery and, with the assistance of European institutions, is committed to taking immediate action. Under the responsibility of the General Secretariat against Corruption, Greece’s National Anti-Corruption Action Plan (NACAP) was revised in 2015. The NACAP implies better integrating anti-corruption and integrity in the government’s reform agendas and the private sector’s business models, as well as raising public awareness on anti-corruption efforts.


In 2016, the OECD, Greece and the European Commission launched a project to increase integrity and reduce corruption in Greece through technical empowerment of the Greek authorities for the implementation of the NCAP. The project was completed in January 2018.
