MACN and its members promote good corporate practice in the maritime industry for tackling bribes, facilitation payments and other forms of corruption. MACN collaborates with key stakeholders, including governments and international organizations, such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), to identify and mitigate the root causes of corruption in the maritime industry.
Neale Proctor, OMA Group Commercial Director commented:
« Through our presence and experience in West Africa, we hope to contribute constructively and positively, as part of MACN’s mission to promote good corporate practice in the maritime industry. Being part of this initiative not only gives us the opportunity to share challenges and solutions with like-minded and committed organisations, but it also gives us comfort in knowing that we are part of a mindset keen to develop our strategically important industry, which lies at the heart of global trade. »
