Transparency and anti-corruption have been a hot topic at the ongoing first Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Senior Officials’ Meeting and related meetings (SOM 1) in Vietnam’s south central coastal Khanh Hoa province’s Nha Trang City.
During a workshop held by APEC on promoting social engagement in fighting corruption held on Feb. 18, and the 24th Anti-Corruption and Transparency Working Group Meeting on Feb. 19-20, delegates from APEC members shared their countries’ experience on the prevention and fighting against corruption.
A representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) presented a review report on global efforts to make investment, business environment more transparent.
Meanwhile, the South Korean delegate said that when an anti-corruption accuser got persecuted or got fired, the country’s anti-corruption agency will jump into making conclusions about the incident. If the accuser is right, the enterprise, even the state-run organizations, will be required to restore the job for him within 30 days.
