The Global Compact Network Australia is holding a special forum event with business leaders about the future of anti-corruption activity in Australia and internationally. Presenters include key members of the 2014 B20 Working Group on Anti-Corruption and are uniquely placed to talk about the G20 anti-corruption outcomes and what they mean for Australian businesses.
Speakers / Panellists:
- Michael Andrew, Co-Chair of the B20 Working Group on Anti-Corruption and former Global Chairman, KPMG
- Geoff Culbert, President and Chief Executive, GE Australia and New Zealand and Papua New Guinea and member of the B20 Working Group on Anti-Corruption
- John Fast, Joint Managing Director, Dragoman and member of the B20 Working Group on Anti-Corruption
- Gary Gill, Partner, KPMG
- Facilitator: Rachel Nicolson, Partner, Allens and Director, Global Compact Network Australia
The B20 Anti-Corruption Working Group estimates that corruption consumes 3 per cent of global GDP each year, and costs more than US$2.6 trillion. Corruption reduces government revenue, increases the costs of doing business and undermines growth and development. This is why anti-corruption has been a major focus of the G20 this year, which will culminate at the G20 Leaders’ Summit on 15-16 November 2014.
After the close of the 2014 G20 Summit, this forum is a unique opportunity to hear an insider’s view on the G20 and B20 anti-corruption discussions and outcomes. The panel will address what the next steps will be in global anti-corruption efforts, what the new G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan for 2015-16 will entail and how it will impact Australian businesses.
You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions, provide your perspective and engage in discussion about the issues that are particularly relevant to your business during a dedicated question and answer session.
