BANGKOK, THAILAND –
Media OutReach Newswire – 5 June 2024 – The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC), Thailand, through its Office of Governance Development and Promotion, recently organized a pivotal discussion on anti-corruption measures in collaboration with the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand (JFCCT). The event took place at Le Lotus Room 1, Swissôtel Bangkok Ratchada, drawing a significant audience of 100 participants, including JFCCT members, foreign embassy representatives, government officials, and private sector stakeholders.

The primary goal of the event was to foster cooperation in combating corruption within foreign private business sectors operating in Thailand. It provided a crucial platform for addressing corruption issues, such as bribery solicitation by government officials, and for offering strategic recommendations to the NACC, the nation’s leading anti-corruption body.

Key Discussion Topics are included “Actions and Efforts to Address Corruption in the Private Sector” and “Participation of the Thai Private Sector in Preventing Corruption”. Distinguished Panelists are comprised of:

Mr. Nitiphan Prachuabmoh, Deputy Secretary-General of the NACC

Mrs. Vibeke Lyssand Leirvag, Chairwoman of the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand

The discussions highlighted the ongoing efforts to tackle corruption within the private sector and emphasized the importance of active participation from Thai businesses in these initiatives. Panelists shared insights on effective internal control measures and the role of corporate governance in preventing bribery and corruption.

The NACC has maintained continuous collaboration with the JFCCT to promote and encourage business operators to implement robust internal control measures. These efforts are designed to enhance Thailand’s commercial competitiveness and improve its international reputation regarding anti-corruption. The expected outcomes include a higher Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) score and increased confidence among foreign investors considering Thailand as a prime investment destination.

The event underscored the critical need for cohesive action and shared responsibility in eradicating corruption, setting a promising precedent for future cooperation between the public and private sectors in Thailand.
