NEW YORK - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says she wants to see more cooperation between countries in efforts to counter corruption.

Madonsela spoke at a United Nations Global Compact event in New York on Wednesday, where over 200 role players gathered to look at measures to deal with graft.

The Public Protector addressed the crowd on ways she believes governments can help incentivise anti-corruption.

She told Eyewitness News there's inadequate sharing of information between countries.

"Particularly between where the corruption happens and where the corrupter comes from."

It's been 10 years since the UN Global Compact's 10th principle on corruption was initiated.
