Prevention of public-private collusion
We, for the purpose of preventing business-politic collusion which has been frequently cited as a main cause of various disasters and accidents, commit to prohibit awarding an unfair contract to a retired public official’s organization and to strengthen management and supervision on industries with high entry barrier such as port and shipping.
This commitment is specific as it aims to prevent public-private collusion and commits to prohibiting the awarding of unfair contracts to a retired public official’s organisation and to strengthen management and supervision of industries with a high entry barrier, such as ports and shipping.
This commitment is measurable as we can check the government’s legislation and administrative actions towards preventing public-private collusion and prohibiting the awarding of unfair contracts to former public officials.
This commitment was announced by ACRC as part of the five-year comprehensive anti-corruption plan; however, no progress has been reported in publicly available sources on the implementation of this commitment so far.
Opportunities to accelerate commitment implementation
The five-year comprehensive anti-corruption plan should be used to regulate collusion between businesses and politicians.
Prohibit the awarding of unfair contracts to retired public officials’ organisations and strengthen management and supervision of industries with high entry barrier, such as ports and shipping.
