Siemens Integrity Initiative is supporting a global network of over 130 companies, under the aegis of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network, in expanding its Collective Action initiative in Nigeria.
According to a statement, the project will be implemented by MACN and the Convention on Business Integrity, and run from 2020 to January 2023.
The Executive Director and Co-founder, CBi, Soji Apampa, said, “Through the generous support from Siemens AG, CBi and MACN will be able to contribute to a stronger government and port authority compliance environment and encourage public-private oversight of compliance in ports and terminals.
“We believe this will lead to more effective seaports and terminals services, and improved corruption prevention practices that, ultimately, will benefit any business using seaports or terminals in Nigeria.”
Executive Director of MACN, Cecilia Müller Torbrand, was quoted as saying, “The Siemens Integrity Initiative is a very competitive funding call that, over the years, has supported some of the leading anti-corruption initiatives globally.”
