On December 16, 2016, The Ministry of Institutional Transparency
and fight against corruption (MITFC) and the National Confederation
of Entrepreneurs (NCE) signed a Public-Private Alliance to
materialize a strategic union through which national public
policies on anti-corruption and transparency will be incorporated
into the private practices of Bolivian companies.
The objective of the alliance is strengthening transparency,
ethics and integrity in the private realm and private
companies' practices in Bolivia through the development of
protocols and policies between the private and public sectors.
The Alliance was signed within the Global Compact of the United
Nations, which aims to achieve sustainable development goals for
companies around the globe. The Global Compact's ten principles
require companies to operate in ways that meet fundamental
responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labor, environment
and anti-corruption. The tenth principle of the Global Compact
concerns corruption and provides that businesses should work
against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and
bribery. The NCE represents the Technical Secretariat for the
Global Compact in Bolivia and is responsible to work on the
implementation of the ten principles of the Compact.
The Public-Private Alliance aims to be strategic and
sustainable, applying permanent dialogue.
