BAAC emphasises the importance of good corporate governance practices and the eradication of critical areas in the business environment that allow corruption to flourish. Its work examines the entire corporate, regulatory and stakeholder framework and ensures effective governance including new voluntary and mandatory codes and company law, as well as developing joint government-business strategies.
Corruption is a global problem and a serious drain on economic and human development in Africa. Corruption undermines democratic institutions, retards economic development and contributes to government instability.
Each BAAC national programme develops consultative working structures through which nationally defined strategies are implemented to improve public service delivery and standards of leadership behaviour.
