Union minister Piyush Goyal today said the Indian government is eradicating corruption by fostering a culture of trust through good governance. Speaking here at a session on tackling the cost of corruption, Goyal said the Narendra Modi government has been steadfastly working on eradicating corruption in the last three and half years since coming to power. He said the government has been fostering a culture of trust through good governance. Panelists at the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting session, which was held as part of the WEF’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative, discussed how can low levels of public trust and a higher incidence of corrupt behaviour be tackled while maintaining market confidence, political stability and economic growth.  

The issues discussed also included understanding the socio-political and economic landscape, creating a sense of collective purpose and leveraging technology as a tool.
