The UK facilitated a seminar to draft an anti-corruption pact between the public, private and third sectors in December 2012. This Pact was finalised over the course of the following year, with the official signing and launch on 9 December 2013 to coincide with International Anti-Corruption Day. The Pact commits the parties to refrain from corruption, instil ethical values in their organisations, and adhere to the principles of integrity, good governance, respect and transparency. Support for subsequent anti-corruption measures will be provided through DFID DRC's Private Sector Development Programme.
