He committed to driving this priority at his Administration’s first Summit for Democracy—trying to help lead efforts internationally to bring transparency to the global financial system and to hold accountable corrupt individuals in countries around the world.

Next year we’ll host the 10th Conference of State Parties to the UN Convention Against Corruption, bringing together experts from around the world in pursuit of a common vision. And we will again make corruption a pillar of the second Summit for Democracy, which President Biden will co-host in March with Costa Rica, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, and Zambia.
