image of Strategies for Business, Government and Civil Society to Fight Corruption in Asia and the Pacific
Bribery is bad for business, so why do businesses continue to bribe? What roles do business, government, and civil society have in the fight against corruption - and notably in the fight against bribery in business? The 6th Regional Anti-Corruption Conference for Asia and the Pacific gathered experts from countries and jurisdictions of Asia and the Pacific, OECD member countries, leading enterprises and businesses associations, civil society, and development partners to respond to these questions and to share their experiences in fighting bribery in business.

The conference, organized by the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific in late November 2008, explored (i) possible drivers and incentives for anti-corruption reform; (ii) the role of criminal law standards and corporate compliance mechanisms; (iii) the risks and countermeasures against private-to-private corruption; (iv) preventing and managing conflicts of interest; (v) international initiatives to counter bribery; (vi) how development partners can become involved in the fight against bribery and corruption. This book presents the proceedings of the conference.

Introduction

Recent corporate corruption scandals, many of which involved major multinational enterprises, have brought the spotlight onto business bribery. Several countries in Asia-Pacific have already responded by initiating anticorruption campaigns targeting this phenomenon. To further these efforts and to exchange experience, the members of the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific dedicated the 6th Regional Anti-Corruption Conference for Asia and the Pacific on 26–28 November 2008 to Fighting Corruption in Asia- Pacific: Strategies for Business, Government, and Civil Society.
