Asian-Pacific countries have made significant efforts to address weaknesses in their procurement frameworks and practices. To support these efforts and to assist the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative’s 28 member countries in strengthening their public-procurement mechanisms, the Initiative conducted a Regional Seminar on Fighting Bribery in Public Procurement in November 2007.  This volume compiles the experience that experts from Asian and Pacific countries – as well as beyond the region – shared during the seminar. It is addressed to policy makers and experts who wish to learn from other countries’ experiences in strengthening frameworks to protect public procurement from bribery and corruption risks.



Chapter 7 - Support from international and regional partners in improving procurement frameworks to prevent bribery

It is governments’ responsibility to strengthen their countries’ anti-bribery legislation and regulatory frameworks to mitigate bribery risks in public procurement. However, in their overall efforts to curb bribery in public procurement, they can draw on support from development banks, international organizations and regional processes. Many countries in the Asia-Pacific region have taken advantage of these actors’ expertise in reforming sectors relevant to the fight against corruption.
