On Wednesday, October 28th 2015 in Dubai, the Pearl Initiative, in collaboration with the Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI) of the World Economic Forum, held a roundtable forum on “Raising Anti-Corruption Standards in the Gulf Region”.

The objective of this roundtable Forum was to bring high level constituents together face-to-face to share practical ideas, experiences and suggestions on collaborative action to raise anti-corruption standards in the Gulf Region. The aim was for roundtable participants to leave with implementable ideas and actions on what can be done by their organisations to engage across value chains to improve anti-corruption practices.

The event also marked the official signing of the collaboration between the Siemens Integrity Initiative and the Pearl Initiative to carry out a collective action project to raise awareness and encourage the adoption of integrity practices in businesses across the GCC.
