Anti-Corruption Conference: Corruption in Indonesia – Challenges and Solutions
24–25 April 2013                          JW Marriott Hotel, Jakarta, Indonesia


A conference presented by the IBA Anti-Corruption Committee, supported by the IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum


This conference is focused on government, political and legal initiatives to promote anti-corruption initiatives in Indonesia and the impact of foreign bribery on national and international investment in the largest Asian nation outside China. In addition, the conference will cover practical issues, recognise local cultures and to promote a robust attack on corruption in Indonesia.

Indonesia has had an unenviable history of endemic corruption for many years. However, since 1998, the Indonesian government has moved to combat and target corruption. Challenges still arise in Asian countries where different laws are sought to be applied. Politics and business are still very much based on ‘personal relationships’. Favours and benefits are mutually shared by those with power and influence across society. With the active support of the Indonesian government, regulators, investigators, prosecutors and private lawyers and business executives, this conference will promote the importance of combating corruption in all forms to benefit society generally.

  • Hear senior members of the Indonesian government and regulatory authorities
  • Understand the regulatory environment in Indonesia in targeting domestic and foreign corruption
  • Hear leading practitioners on the role the Indonesian legal profession can take in combating corruption
