Peruvian Ministry of Economy and Finance approves Code of Ethics and Conduct
Peru’s Ministry of Economy and Finance has approved a new Code of Ethics and Conduct as part of its efforts to combat corruption and promote ethical principles and moral values.
The Code was co-developed by ministry officials with technical assistance from SECO-funded Public Finance Management programme implemented by the Basel Institute on Governance in Peru.
The aim of the Code of Ethics and Conduct is to offer guidance on correct (and incorrect) behaviour, based on the example shown by public servants who demonstrate ethical behaviour in their daily work.
As the entity responsible for public finances in Peru, it is commendable that the Ministry of Economy and Finance is taking the lead in collaboratively developing tools to promote integrity. This Code of Ethics and Conduct is an important step in transforming the organisational culture of public bodies towards a culture of ethical and efficient behaviour.
