Today, December 9, marks International Anti Corruption Day.

This day is being marked under the theme United against Corruption for Development, Peace and Security.

Issuing a statement, the Executive Director of the International Anti Corruption Day said, since the G20 has estimated 90 trillion U.S. dollars in infrastructure, investment is required between 2015 and 2030 to support global growth and development, corruption’s destructive impact should not be ignored.

He also said that change cannot come without the active engagement of the private sector to create a zero tolerance culture, especially in supply chains.

He also added that policies should promote private sector competition,  and fees for services should be reasonable and affordable.

Issuing a statement, on International Anti Corruption Day, UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon said that everyone should reaffirm the commitment to ending the deceit and dishonesty that threaten the 2030 Agenda and our efforts to achieve peace and prosperity for all on a healthy planet.
