5th Regional Anti-Corruption Conference for Asia and the Pacific
The ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative held the 5th Regional Anti-Corruption Conference for Asia and the Pacific in Beijing, China, on 28-30 September 2005. The conference brought together governments, international organizations, donor agencies, the private sector, NGOs, trade unions and the media from the Initiative’s then 25 member countries as well as other ADB members and States parties to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention.
The conference provided these experts with a forum to review and debate recent policy developments in the fight against corruption and an opportunity to identify the most pressing challenges and effective counter-measures.
Participants will also formulate benchmarks to help evaluate successes and progress of future efforts under the Initiative’s Action Plan.
The event also aimed at strengthening regional cooperation, fostering the exchange of knowledge and experience, and building synergies and networks. To this end, six capacity building workshops focused on topics including public opinion surveys, donor support for anti-corruption reform, preventing corruption in humanitarian aid, and international legal cooperation.
