APC to hold a forum on combating corruption and promoting competitiveness
Anti-corruption efforts are often equated with the quest for “incorruptible leaders”. Such leaders are thought to produce a “halo effect”, improving the overall corruption perceptions of a country and contributing to the change management needed to curb corruption in public and private sectors. However, structural changes are also necessary to transform the entire economic and policy-making environment, and to make many of these gains permanent. Reform efforts are more likely to succeed if they are predicated on facilitating a transparent policy and bureaucratic environment with standard rules and regulations and little room for discretion on the part of public sector officials.
Join the discussion, “Two sides of a coin: A Forum on Combating Corruption and Promoting Economic Competitiveness” on July 16, 2014, from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM, at the Bahia Rooftop, 14/F Intercontinental Hotel, Makati City.
Organzied by the Asian Institute of Management and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, in collaboration with EU-Asia Economic Governance Forum, Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility, Ateneo School of Government, and International Center for Innovation, Transformation and Excellence in Governance, this policy forum brings together experts, policymakers and various stakeholders in the anti-corruption effort in Asia and beyond.
