The pilot OECD Business Integrity Roundtable Series (BIR) was held from 24 March – 12 May 2021, bringing together over 1,900 participants in 7 virtual events. The Series included a two-part global roundtable, 3 regional roundtables and 2 thematic roundtables and acted as a forum to promote good practices and catalyse trust in business. Topics covered include business integrity trends, incentives, challenges and innovative approaches to implementation.
14/09/2016 - This study explores what governments, business associations, NGOs, and companies do in order to strengthen business integrity with a particular focus on anti-corruption measures in and for the private sector in countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, as well as in selected other countries. Across the region laws, regulations and policies rapidly develop for tackling private-to-public and private-to-private corruption such as bribery and other exchanges of inappropriate advantages as well as preventing risks of breach of trust within companies such as favouritism in concluding contracts and unresolved conflicts of interest. Meanwhile the level of enforcement remains uneven between different countries as does the development of good practices and policies of different associations and companies.
This study analyses current trends, identifies good practices and develops policy recommendations on further promoting business integrity in the region. It serves as a reference point for policy reforms and reviews.
The report is part of the 2013-2015 work programme of the Anti-Corruption Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia. It is one of three cross-country studies within the programme. The other two are prevention of corruption in the public sector and law enforcement and criminalisation of corruption.
