To support Asian-Pacific governments in the fight against corruption, the Initiative has built partnerships with the private sector, civil society, donors, and regional and international organisations actively involved in combating corruption.

 

As members of the Advisory Group, these partners provide the members of the Initiative and the Secretariat with information on their contribution to anti-corruption in Asia-Pacific and insights on emerging prorities. The Advisory Group also serves as a forum for these partners to coordinate their anti-corruption efforts.

 

The Advisory Group's members are donors—currently Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Germany’s GIZ and Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) — and the Governance Network of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC GOVNET), as well as bodies actively involved in the fight against corruption in the region: the American Bar Association/Rule of Law Initiative (ABA-ROLI), the Asia-Pacific Group on Money Laundering (APG), Transparency International (TI), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the World Bank.

 

The Initiative works in close partnership with the OECD’s Working Group on Bribery in International Business Transactions and other OECD bodies, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and various other regional organisations. The Initiative also participates in the Conference of State Parties of the United Nations Convention against Corruption
