In 2004, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation's leaders agreed that their economies should nurture and sustain good governance, economic development, and prosperity by ensuring transparency and fighting corruption. This was reaffirmed in Beijing in 2014.
APEC’s Anti-Corruption and Transparency Working Group (ACTWG) continues to seek new ways to tackle corruption by promoting international cooperation in prevention, enforcement, rule of law, and cultures of integrity within and across economies, markets and supply chains.
In this roundtable, business stakeholders, government and multilateral organizations can potentially lay the groundwork for broader rule of law discussions, looking forward to Peru’s hosting of APEC in 2016.
