Strenthening Business Integrity in Morocco: International Standards and Collective Actions

6 December 2018 | Rabat | Morocco

The object of this meeting, organised in the framework of the Strengthening Business Integrity in Morocco Project, is to assess the benefits, results and challenges of collective actions against corruption in Morocco, in particular in the three sectors covered by the Project--energy, transportation and health. The meeting will also provide the opportunity to discuss international standards on integrity set by the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention in the presence of the Chair and Co-chair of the OECD Working Group on Bribery in International Business Transaction.


 Aperçu des risques d'intégrité


Corruption is a world-wide challenge with complex social, political and economic dimensions. In the Middle East and North-Africa (MENA), a number of countries have made the fight against corruption a priority by passing laws and adopting strategies to combat corruption. However, progress in eliminating this problem has been limited and corruption still stands as a major obstacle for doing business in the region.

Integrity is central to the development of competitive and open economies in which growth and opportunities are sustainably and equitably distributed. Strengthening business integrity and fighting corruption will be essential for establishing investors’ confidence and levelling the playing field for doing business.
