State-owned enterprises and private companies were never systematically included in corruption prevention activities in the country. This situation resulted in poor transparency and accountability of state-owned enterprises, abuse of public resources for personal gains, use of state-owned enterprises for employment of party members , increased borrowing by state-owned enterprises, and hindering the development of private companies. 

“Integrity and anti-corruption in business sector” is an action that will strengthen civil society’s impact on decreasing corruption in the business sector by improving transparency, accountability and integrity of state-owned enterprises and increasing private sector’s participationin the fight against corruption.
