Fighting corruption and promoting competition

More than 90 delegations attended the 2014 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Global Forum on Competition held in Paris, France on 27-28 February. David Lewis of Corruption Watch and Reena Das Nair, TIPS trade and industrial policy programme manager, prepared a background note for the session on Fighting Corruption and Promoting Competition. Their paper examined the interface between corruption and competition. The forms of corruption looked at the focused on the decision-making powers of public officials and elected representatives that are located at the interface between the public sector and private sector (that is, the business sector), or what may be otherwise characterised as the interface between the state and the market.
