The anti-corruption strategy aims to support national security, prosperity at home and abroad and public confidence in our institutions. The strategy is ambitious and this update shows how in many areas we have laid the foundations for realising our goals. It has involved scoping, designing and piloting initiatives, securing funding as well as starting implementation. The impact of these actions will be measured against the overall objective to tackle corruption over the life of the five-year strategy.
This update highlights that as we plan for the UK’s departure from the European Union we will prioritise strengthening international cooperation and continue to work with partners to bolster global efforts to tackle corruption.
