Integrity Foundation of Good Governance

art-139-01

Integrity is the foundation of good governance, protecting a country from devastating behaviour such as corruption and concurrently helping the country achieve its goals.

Integrity is an uncompromising and consistent commitment to honour moral, ethical, spiritual and artistic values and principles. Integrity compels us to be socially conscious and to welcome both personal and professional responsibility. Its values encourage us to be honest in all our dealings and committed to a lifelong search for truth and justice.

Good governance plays a major role in the creation of the enabling environment of peace, security and stability.

Improved governance requires an integrated, long-term strategy built upon cooperation between government and citizens.

Public sector plays a major role in society. In most economies, public expenditure forms a significant part of gross domestic product and public sector entities are substantial employers and major capital market participants.

Accountable and transparent government is an important milestone on the path to creating the most prosperous and productive economies that allow individuals, businesses and governments to create the highest possible standard of living for the largest possible number of people.

Appropriate levels of openness and transparency are important elements of contemporary governance approaches which enable stakeholders to have confidence in public sector decision making processes and actions.

Citizens and officials must see good governance not only as an ideal, but also as improving their own lives.
