Distinguished guests, I’m honored to be here today to speak about the fight against corruption, an issue that is increasingly vital in Central and Eastern Europe. Looking around the room, I see that we are a diverse group – civil society, government officials, journalists, judges, diplomats – and everyone cares deeply about combatting corruption. We also share profound concern about the people and the future of Macedonia, and are committed to working together in the fight against corruption.

In our interconnected world, the harmful impacts of corruption are global – it is a massive tax on the private sector, which in turn hinders poverty reduction and limits global growth. The World Bank estimates that people around the world pay more than $1 trillion in bribes every year. That’s right, a one with 12 zeroes behind it; a number which is difficult to comprehend. The European Commission recently found that corruption costs the European Union as a whole 120 billion euros every single year. That’s more than 10 times Macedonia’s GDP.
