Transparency International (TI) is a non-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to fighting corruption both internationally and at the national level.
It was formed in 1993 and immediately generated enormous interest and support. There are now more than 100 chapters worldwide who work both within their own countries, and form networks with other chapters to pursue our ideals at an international level.
Rather than focusing on naming names or denouncing individuals and companies, TI is committed to creating and working with broad coalitions representing civil society to prevent corruption by reforming systems. It does not investigate or prosecute individual cases and is politically non-partisan.
Transparency International Papua New Guinea (TI PNG) is a chapter of TI. TIPNG was formed in 1997 by a group of concerned citizens, headed by the Late Sir Anthony Siaguru, with the aim of combating corruption and
promoting openness, honesty and accountability in public and private dealings.
With the vision of protecting the integrity of the people, society and the nation, TI PNG's core business is to create awareness on the damaging effects of corruption and empower people to make an active choice against it.
