Business Integrity Initiative: Changing the Way We Do Business in Africa?

Forum0 comments

230,000+ UK SMEs need to export to Africa without engaging in corruption. They need clean business partners and intermediaries. Is this a business opportunity for your country? If your country is anything like mine (Nigeria) where corruption is endemic, pervasive and systemic, you will know the business case for spending scarce funds on demonstrating anti-corruption compliance is not that easy to make.

  1. How businesses in Nigeria win and retain business does not receive that much regulatory attention to warrant any change in behaviour.
  2. Not enough buyers of goods and services in Nigeria require integrity as a condition for engagement.
  3. Acting with integrity is seen by most local companies as a moral, but impractical, nice-to-have, given the generally corrupt environment in which they operate.

The second in a series of round table sessions on service delivery in Nigerian ports took place on the 22nd of October in Abuja and was hosted by the Convention on Business Integrity (CBI) on behalf of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) and with support from the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).

The objective of these MACN events is to launch a series of interventions aimed at promoting transparency and consistent application of Standard Operating Procedures leading to more predictable (in time and cost) vessel and cargo clearance at the Ports & Terminals.

Stakeholders at the event also have took advantage of the opportunity to be part of the ongoing collective action to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our ports and terminals.
