THE REGIONAL WORKSHOP TO DEVELOP THE EAC BUSINESS CODE & ETHICS
As a regional private sector advocacy body, EABC’s success depends on its reputation, integrity and transparency. Both regionally and globally, a clear business case has repeatedly been underscored for businesses to behave in a manner that promotes ethical business practices, transparency and fair competition in the private sector for the benefit of their companies; the economy, the citizenry and the environment.
Against this background EABC organized the first workshop in pursuit of developing a code of conduct and ethics for business community in EAC. This Code of Conduct/Ethics shall ensure compliance with legal requirements and standards of business conduct. The Code will set out responsibilities and values to guide business operations and relationships. The business community will be expected to serve as role models by visibly demonstrating support and by regularly encouraging adherence to the set standards.
