Corruption undermines the foundations of government, disrupts free markets and threatens national security. Under President-elect Biden, we can expect a renewed focus on promoting transparency and tackling corruption. He has pledged to recommit to multilateralism, returning America to its leadership role in the global fight against corruption—and is likely to double down on the trend of internationally coordinated legal actions similar to the Airbus and Goldman Sachs resolutions. He has promised to enact reforms to stem the flow of dirty money and revitalize the United States’ commitment to the rule of law.
But we have work to do.
Countering transnational corruption requires a commitment from both the public and private sectors. Companies must continue to proactively lead in transnational anti-corruption efforts.
