Anti-Corruption and Investment Climate Group
In 2016, PRS put into play its Anti-Corruption and Investment Climate (ACIC) group. PRS is also one of a dozen firms worldwide that supply original corruption risk data to Transparency International (TI) for the organization’s annual Corruption Perceptions Index. We’ve been working with TI for two decades.
As a result, in 2016 we began conducting bespoke work with a number of government anti-corruption agencies in Asia and the Middle East to develop a better understanding of their efforts to eradicate graft and thus improve their respective business and investment climates.
After site visits and meetings with relevant personnel, PRS will be showcasing each governments’ activities in this regard as a first step, and will eventually work with them on an ongoing basis so that the positive momentum is sustained.
Essentially, the group works with anti-corruption agencies worldwide, understanding their programs, assessing their efforts, engaging in joint publications, with the ultimate goal of improving corruption scores (that eventually go to Transparency International and its Corruption Perceptions Index).
