Exchange of information, experience and good practice are core means to promote anti-corruption efforts. The ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia-Pacific publishes its policy reviews, proceedings from conferences and technical seminars to make the information available to the widest possible audience. All documents are available for download from this website and hard copies are available upon request.

A regular newsletter disseminates information on developments in the Asia-Pacific region, activities and reforms undertaken by the Initiative's members, and the Initiative's work and upcoming events. To subscribe or unsubscribe to the newsletter or for questions and comments, please send an e-mail to
