Item description for Anti-Corruption Policies in Asia and the Pacific: The Legal and Institutional Frameworks by Asian Development Bank...
Over the last decade, societies have come to realize the extent to which corruption and bribery have undermined their welfare and stability. Governments, the private
sector, and civil society have consequently declared the fight against corruption to be of the highest priority. In the Asia-Pacific region, 23 countries have expressed their commitment to fight corruption by endorsing an Anti-Corruption Action Plan within the framework of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific, a first-of-its-kind partnership among stakeholders of Asian and Pacific countries.
The Action Plan comprehensively promotes the regions objectives and priorities for reform to develop effective and transparent systems for public service, strengthen anti-bribery initiatives, promote integrity in business operations, and support citizens involvement. Acknowledging that each country has different needs, the Action Plan leaves the responsibility for defining, assessing, and implementing strategies with the countries.
An overview of the consolidated efforts and developments in the 23 Asian and Pacific countries and territories, this report is based on self-assessment reports provided by governments that have endorsed the Action Plan and on information on institutions official websites. The report covers Australia; Bangladesh; Cambodia; Cook Islands; Fiji Islands; Hong Kong, China; India; Indonesia; Japan; Republic of Kazakhstan; Republic of Korea; Kyrgyz Republic; Malaysia; Mongolia; Nepal; Pakistan; Papua New Guinea; Philippines; Samoa; Singapore; and Vanuatu.
