The Confederation of Mozambican Economic Associations (CTA), the largest employers’ association in the country, and the Central Office for Combating Corruption (GCCC) are to develop joint actions, it was announced yesterday.
The confederation and the GCCC signed a memorandum of understanding under which CTA will carry out specific anti-corruption actions, both preventive and combative, and urge its members to report acts of corruption to the anti-graft watchdog.
The agreement also provides for capacity-building actions on business ethics, good governance and productivity, and the creation of a culture of information dissemination promoting awareness and transparency among entrepreneurs.
For its part, the GCCC will provide legal assistance regarding fighting corruption and taking preventive actions, as well as promoting the inclusion of modules on preventing and fighting corruption in CTA-organised training initiatives.
Integrity in business is essential for the creation of a good investment environment in the country, CTA chairman Agostinho Vuma says in the joint statement.Source: Lusa
