International Anti-Corruption Day at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation

Today, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, opened “International Anti-Corruption Day” at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, devoted to the prevention of corruption in public and subsidiary companies.

The President of the National Anti-Corruption Authority, Raffaele Cantone, and the Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office on Combating Corruption, Paola Severino, also addressed the meeting.

A debate followed with presentations and accounts given by the Ambassadors of the G20 countries, senior civil servants, law enforcement officials, representatives from the judiciary, freelance professions, universities and civil society, as well as representatives from the most active Italian subsidiary companies abroad.

The event was organised jointly by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Anti-Corruption National Authority (ANAC) to show how committed our country is to combating corruption. The event aimed to increase awareness in public institutions and operators of the common standards and principles set out in the legal systems of the leading global economies. These standards, such as the G20 Standards on State-owned enterprises adopted by the Buenos Aires Summit or the OECD Guidelines for multinational companies, aim to ensure reciprocity and uniformity in the rules governing public companies and subsidiaries of G20 countries who operate in international markets. A regulatory framework and standard compliance are essential to ensure fair competition between companies.
