OGE regularly meets with foreign public and private sector
groups through the State Department International Visitor Leadership Program
and similar programs. These foreign delegations come to OGE to learn about the
ethics program in the executive branch and how that program fits under the
broader rubric of anti-corruption, financial disclosure, good governance and
