This project report documents the processes, results, lessons, and recommendations that emerged from the ACT 02 2011A project’s two main components: the Baseline Study and the Forum on the Implementation of the APEC Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct for Business.
The Baseline Study assessed the extent that governments, business associations, and private enterprises of APEC member economies have put in place policies, programs, and practices aligned with the provisions of the APEC Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct for Business (APEC Code). The study was carried out through an online survey, content-analysis of publicly available documents from websites of randomly-selected companies, and review of secondary information.
These results were presented in the Forum on the Implementation of the APEC Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct for Business held on 20-21 September 2012 in Manila, Philippines. The Forum showcased presentations from expert anti-corruption speakers, a workshop session, and an exhibit of anti-corruption initiatives from various development agencies.
