(New York, 6 October 2006) – The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched this week a web portal to assist small- and medium-sized enterprises operating in developing countries. The Danish Development Cooperation Agency (DANIDA) and Global Advice Network have through a public-private partnership created the Business Anti Corruption Portal: www.business-anti-corruption.com, offering practical tools and advice making it a "one-stop-shop" on corruption.
The tool, developed with input from the Global Compact and Transparency International, is designed to help SMEs to avoid corruption when trading and working with developing countries. Through concrete corruption cases, companies can obtain knowledge about corruption and thereby learn how to combat corruption. The English-language portal wishes to be a one-stop-shop for companies with due diligence tools, tools on how to formulate a Code of Conduct and links to local and international organisations.
