The ACWG actively collaborates with the World Bank, the OECD, the UNODC, the IMF, the FATF, as well as with the Business 20 Task Force on Improving Transparency and Anti-corruption and the Civil 20 Working Group on Anti-Corruption. The present activities of the ACWG are built around the G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan 2013-2014.

International Trade

International trade facilitation is recognized by the G20 as an important factor for economic growth, job creation and development. Thus the three main issues of the G20 trade agenda in 2013 are: (1) preventing growth of protectionism and continuing efforts necessary to curb protectionist measures; (2) strengthening and developing the multilateral trade system, supporting multilateral negotiations and the forthcoming WTO Ministerial conference in Bali; (3) continuing the discussion of the global value chains (GVC), started in 2012 in Los Cabos, in terms of possible implications for international trade and regulatory policies. Likewise, the G20 brings its attention to of the impact of higher transparency when signing RTAs, and application of trade-related measures going beyond the WTO mandate.
