The UK’s Anti-Corruption Strategy, published on the 11th December, establishes an ambitious longer-term framework to guide UK government efforts to tackle corruption at home and abroad in the period to 2022. It sets out priorities for the government's anti-corruption response and includes a strong recognition of the relationship of integrity in business and prosperity. As a part of this, the Department for International Trade will consider how anti-corruption can be best supported through our bilateral and regional trade dialogues and trading agreements as the UK develops its position as an independent trading nation.
