Survey on Anti-Corruption and Responsible Business Conduct in Southeast Asia


Deadline for response: 3 July 2020

Take the survey!

The OECD, in partnership with UNDP, is conducting a firm-level survey (available in EnglishBahasa IndonesiaVietnameseBahasa Malaysia, Thai and Burmese) to obtain information on the practices and challenges in anti-corruption compliance and responsible business conduct in Southeast Asia, including specific issues and challenges arising in the COVID-19 crisis.

The survey targets firms of different sizes, ownership structure and within varied sectors and across different geographic locations, from small-and-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to the largest state-owned enterprises (SOEs). In the current context of the COVID-19 global health and economic crisis, the survey also collects preliminary data on how companies are reacting, reorganising and responding to the crisis, including adapting business integrity frameworks to address increased risks of corruption.

Survey participants are not required to identify themselves or their organisation and all responses will be confidential. The findings from the survey will only be reported in aggregate form or in a manner that does not allow individual responses to be identified. Respondents are invited to leave their name, title and email address if they would like to receive updates on the results of the survey and future business integrity activities in the region.

The survey takes part under two programmes: the joint OECD-ILO-EU programme to promote Responsible Supply Chains in Asia, and the the OECD South East Asia Anti-Corruption and Business Integrity Project supported by the UK Prosperity Fund.


About the OECD South East Asia Anti-Corruption and Business Integrity Project

Southeast Asia is one of the most dynamic and diverse regions in the world. To maximise sustainable and inclusive growth, the region and its economies have individually and collectively committed to strengthening business integrity. The OECD South East Asia Anti-Corruption and Business Integrity (SEACAB) Project aims to promote business integrity in the region, including by strengthening business’ awareness of, and ability to mitigate, corruption risk. The Project is delivered in collaboration with key partners and projects in the region, with an initial focus on Indonesia, Malaysia and Viet Nam. 

Activities being carried out under the auspices of the SEACAB Project are:

  • Regional thematic workshops and collective action events
  • Country-specific trainings and capacity-building
  • Building the ACI evidence base for further in-country work

The SEACAB Project is part of the OECD Anti-Corruption & Integrity Project, an initiative financed by the United Kingdom’s Prosperity Fund. 


About the Joint OECD-ILO-EU Programme to Promote Responsible Supply Chains in Asia 

The OECD has worked with key Asian partners for a number of years to promote responsible investment and responsible business conduct. The OECD, in partnership with the International Labour Organisation and the European Union, is contributing its expertise on trade and investment and on risk-based RBC due diligence to support policy developments and action to create an enabling environment for RBC, to boost industry capacity, and to raise awareness of the importance of RBC.

The programme is taking place from 2018 to 2020 in partnership with Japan, an OECD country, and the only country in the programme that has adhered to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and set up a National Contact Point (NCP), and five partner economies, namely China, Thailand, Viet Nam, Philippines, and Myanmar. A significant component of the activities includes working directly with businesses to promote responsible supply chains through implementing RBC due diligence
