|TIA CEO Serena Lillywhite participated in the OECD Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum in April. Here’s Serena’s take away from the event:
“The Forum reaffirmed the need to rebuild public trust in government and business through strengthened integrity systems. The risk of state and political capture, particularly in procurement and the issuing of licenses, through conflict of interest, and poor due diligence was highlighted. I was very pleased to present the M4SD findings at the panel on integrity issues at sub-national level. Our research shows that even in mature mining jurisdictions, such as Australia, corruption vulnerabilities exist in the mining approvals process and the system needs fixing”.
