Maritime Bribery and Corruption Regulation

To fight corruption in the maritime industry, we must continuously advocate for ethics and transparency across all areas of business. In doing so, we must channel more attention to maritime bribery and corruption regulation policies on a national and international level. This is contingent on the collaborative efforts of nations who must champion for stringent anti-corruption practices in the maritime industry.

Fostering a Maritime Anti-Corruption Network of Like-minded Stakeholders

As we work towards building an anti-corruption culture in the maritime industry, we need to establish a collective force that serves to protect fair trade among businesses throughout the supply chain. These include vessel-owning companies, cargo owners and other service providers contributing to daily operations in the sector. A strong maritime anti-corruption network among these stakeholders allows for effective collaboration where there is a seamless exchange of information, practices and other relevant expertise.

By establishing a maritime anti-corruption network that fosters integrity and ethics, we can rally stakeholders on a unified front to enforce tougher maritime bribery and corruption regulation globally. This is possible with education and continuous advocacy. Through independent journalism, we prepare extensive news reports on the latest developments on anti-corruption measures in the maritime industry. We also put together in-depth analyses and investigative features to address bribery and corruption issues on the ground and explore the complexities and intricacies that come with them. We also speak to industry experts and thought leaders to gain valuable insights on current maritime bribery and corruption regulations, and what more can be done to create an ethics-compliant and anti-corrupt trade in this sector.
