G20 Anti-Corruption Resources


The G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group

Established in 2010, the G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group (ACWG) reports to G20 Leaders on anti-corruption. Thematic focus areas include public and private sector integrity and transparency, bribery, international cooperation, asset recovery, beneficial ownership transparency, vulnerable sectors and capacity-building.

The ACWG is chaired by the Presidency of the G20 and a co-chair. In 2021, the group is co-chaired by Italy and India. Members of the group are the 19 G20 countries and the European Union, Singapore, Spain and Switzerland as permanent guest countries, as well as additional guest countries invited by the respective presidency. International organizations and intergovernmental bodies act as observers, in particular the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

The group's work is guided by the St. Petersburg Strategic Framework and by multi-year action plans. The focus of the work is determined by the co-chairs within the parameters of the action plans. Every year, the group prepares deliverables, usually in the form of high-level principles, compendia of good practices and country-specific guidance. In addition, the group is obliged to report annually on its progress and regularly publishes monitoring or accountability reports.
