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.

Working together to combat corruption: International and regional initiatives

With the growth of multinational enterprises and transnational economic ties, governments and businesses have created regional and global alliances to respond to corruption and related crimes. Through these initiatives, governments and businesses seek to jointly address common challenges and to minimize risks in a sensitive environment. These programs can address corruption in general, or on industry-specific issues. These international initiatives play an important role in driving reform. However, their impact largely depends on implementation at the country level, which is often driven or supported by civil society.
