APEC Workshop on Enhancing Whistle-blower Protection in Corruption Cases

Under the APEC Anti-Corruption and Transparency Experts Working Group(ACTWG), we are very pleased to work with Papua New Guinea for a project aimed at sharing best practices and experiences on developing and enhancing whistle-blower protection within APEC member economies. This project also echoes this year’s emphasis on advancing structural reform for sustainable, innovative, and inclusive growth by ensuring the integrity of legal processes and good governance.

The APEC Workshop on Enhancing Whistleblower Protection in Corruption Cases will be held on July 19-20, 2017. It will bring representatives of the relevant law-enforcement agencies, other agencies involved in providing and promoting whistle-blower protection and the private sector to share experiences and best practice sharing.

In addition, the workshop will identify the key elements of whistle-blower protection and their practicable conditions meanwhile provide a forum for recommendations to be developed based on the lessons and experience shared at the workshop. Then, an outcomes document/report outlining the key discussions will take place at the workshop.
