Fighting Corruption in East Asia: Solutions from the Private Sector
Recent corporate scandals highlight the importance of both public sector initiatives and sound internal company policies in the fight against fraud and corruption. Policymakers, international organizations, and advocacy groups all agree these supply-side anti-corruption efforts are a critical component of the anti-corruption tool kit. This book, based on research conducted by the World Bank and the Conference Board, describes the efforts of Western and Asian companies to develop good standards of business conduct in their East Asian operations. Case studies from a wide range of corporate settings offer concrete examples of best practices in program creation, implementation, and effectiveness. The book also provides examples of dissemination of those practices that underscore the importance of business partnerships with the public sector and civil society organizations. An essential guidebook for companies, policymakers, academics, and nongovernmental organizations, this book will be of interest to anyone seeking improved business conduct standards in developing countries.
