The ADB/OECD Initiative's fourth regional anti-corruption conference aimed to review and discuss progress made by endorsing countries in implementing the Action Plan for Asia and the Pacific and to enhance capacity in a number of areas which have been identified as particular challenges to Asian and Pacific countries. This publication assembles the analysis and recommendations offered in the course of the conference by experts. Discussions focused on ways to enhance integrity in the public service through management of conflict of interest situations and on measures to strengthen integrity in the business sector, to avoid abuses in procurement, the needs and tools for a meaningful protection of whistleblowers, the mechanisms required to make investigation and prosecution of corruption more effective, including the techniques of forensic accounting and functioning procedures for mutual legal assistance and asset recovery.
