Peru and members of the G8 countries have announced their plan to make a pact to "promote transparency and combat corruption". The G8 'compact' states, "Peru and the G8 share the view that corruption is a threat to democratic institutions, economic development and to the integrity of the international system of trade and investment."
The document, released by the G8, outlined Peru's commitment to the compact including improving transparency, strengthening of the legal framework and the judiciary, reform of penal law, and priority to the prosecution of those involved in the most extreme cases of corruption.
