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.
