The project “STRENGTHENING ANTI-CORRUPTION COMPLIANCE IN UKRAINE”
It is common knowledge that corruption, having penetrated into all spheres of life, became almost the main cause of economic and political disturbances in modern Ukraine. The necessity to resist this shameful phenomenon is understood at all levels; many politicians, businessmen and ordinary citizens declare their willingness to demonstrate “zero tolerance” for bribery, “kickbacks”, bribery of officials, etc.
Discussion of anti-corruption measures in Ukraine, as a rule, is limited to the public sphere – declarations and monitoring of lifestyle of the officials, transparency of public tenders, tightening of criminal legislation, improvement of work of the law enforcement agencies etc. At the same time, the mechanisms for eradiation of corruption in the private sector are obviously undervalued.
Understanding the necessity to develop this particular component of the anti-corruption activities, Corporate Governance Professional Association with the support of the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), implements the Project “Strengthening Anti-Corruption Compliance in Ukraine“. The aim of the project is to provide medium-size Ukrainian companies with practical assistance in development and implementation of the anti-corruption programs.
We set the following tasks for ourselves in this Project:
Within the Project we have created a permanent Training and Consulting Center; and we are developing Compliance Officers Training Program (authorized to implement the anti-corruption programs) for Ukrainian companies.
