The Pilot OECD Business Integrity Roundtable was launched in spring 2021 as a forum to promote good practices on anti-corruption compliance among the governments and private sector partners from OECD member and non-member countries.
It included 7 virtual events, including global, regional and thematic sessions dedicated to business integrity trends, incentives, non-judicial mechanisms for resolving issues between companies and governments.
Building on the success of the Pilot Business Integrity Roundtable, the OECD, together with partner organsations, will hold the 2022 Business Integrity Roundtable starting from September. It will feature 5 virtual events open to public.
Business Integrity in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, 2022
The 2022 study of the regional study on business integrity in Eastern Europe and Central Asia analyses measures that governments, companies and business associations are taking to prevent corruption in business transactions. This report compares recent trends with those identified in the first study released in 2016, to identify areas of progress or regress, and shares updated best practices and policy recommendations for further promoting business integrity in the region.
14/09/2016 - This study explores what governments, business associations, NGOs, and companies do in order to strengthen business integrity with a particular focus on anti-corruption measures in and for the private sector in countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, as well as in selected other countries. Across the region laws, regulations and policies rapidly develop for tackling private-to-public and private-to-private corruption such as bribery and other exchanges of inappropriate advantages as well as preventing risks of breach of trust within companies such as favouritism in concluding contracts and unresolved conflicts of interest. Meanwhile the level of enforcement remains uneven between different countries as does the development of good practices and policies of different associations and companies.
This study analyses current trends, identifies good practices and develops policy recommendations on further promoting business integrity in the region. It serves as a reference point for policy reforms and reviews.
The report is part of the 2013-2015 work programme of the Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia. It is one of three cross-country studies within the programme. The other two are prevention of corruption in the public sector and law enforcement and criminalisation of corruption.
