In my role as International Anti-Corruption Champion, I am responsible for coordinating and driving forward Government action against international corruption. This cross-departmental work has included annual instructions to Overseas Missions on reporting allegations on UK involvement in foreign bribery and supporting ethical business conduct. Work under the new Foreign Bribery Strategy will include a more detailed anti-corruption toolkit for Overseas Missions and the development of new guidelines regarding companies convicted of corruption offences.
