7th Regional Anti-Corruption Conference for Asia and the Pacific
On 28-29 September 2011, the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific and the Government of India co-hosted the 7th Regional Anti-Corruption Conference for Asia and the Pacific. The Conference provided a forum on establishing and implementing in Asia-Pacific some of the main features of an effective multidisciplinary anti-corruption framework: 1) international co-operation in multijurisdictional corruption investigations; 2) measures to prevent and detect corruption in public procurement; 3) corporate compliance, internal controls and ethics measures to fight corruption; and 4) strong citizen contributions to these frameworks.
Additional smaller breakout sessions delved further into more specialised areas of interest, such as effective international information-sharing in investigations; public procurement in high risk sectors; features of an effective corporate compliance programme; and strengthening citizens’ participation to increase integrity and transparency in government.
This Conference gathered experts from the 28 member countries and economies of the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific. In addition, leading global experts, including from other regions and OECD member countries, shared their experiences. Experts came from all the relevant disciplines – representing international organizations, leading enterprises and businesses associations, civil society, and multilateral and donor organizations.
