Policy dialogue and the exchange of experience in anti-corruption reform are at the core of the Action Plan’s implementation mechanism. They are key means to foster strong and sustainable safeguards against corruption in Asian and Pacific countries.
Policy dialogue takes place during Steering Group meetings, held approximately once every eight months, and regional conferences, held every two to three years.
The Steering Group meetings bring together member countries (collectively as the Steering Group) and the Advisory Group, which consists of international organisations and donors that support the fight against corruption in Asia and the Pacific. During the Steering Group meetings, delegates discuss their countries’ efforts to implement the Action Plan, assess developments and progress, and exchange experience about challenges, success, and failures in the design and implementation of reforms. The Steering Group also decides about the Initiative's future activities and priorities.
Regional Conferences gather policymakers, civil society and business sector representatives to assess progress, exchange ideas and experience, and determine future challenges and priorities.
The policy dialogue that takes place at Steering Group meetings and Conferences is supported through a continual stocktaking on anti-corruption policies and legal and institutional frameworks in Asia-Pacific.
