Organized by: ICPC and UNDP-ACIAC

The Kingdom of Morocco hosted a regional workshop entitled "Integrity in the Interface between the Public and Private Sectors in the Arab Countries" in Casablanca on 24-25 September 2013. This workshop was organized by UNDP’s Regional Project on Anti-Corruption and Integrity in the Arab Countries (UNDP-ACIAC) in partnership with the Central Authority for Corruption Prevention and in collaboration with the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises and the Ministry of General Affairs and Governance. The workshop is part of a series of regional activities organized to strengthen the integrity of the private sector in the Arab region, including national workshops, specialized research studies and two regional workshops; the first held in Tunis on 7-8 June 2012 and the second in Kuwait on 18-19 December 2012. The third regional workshop aimed to enable participants to discuss in depth major integrity challenges in the interface between the public and private sectors, with a focus on the areas of customs and public procurement. It also allowed for an exchange of experiences and expertise on measures and initiatives that can reduce related corruption risks. The workshop also provided a common platform to review progress achieved in strengthening the private sector integrity in various Arab countries during the past year. More than 150 participants from 13 Arab countries are attending the workshop, including senior representatives and distinguished experts from the public and private sectors as well as representatives of civil society and of regional and international organizations.
