The third annual regional conference combating corruption will begin in Tokyo
November 28. It is likely to adopt a regional anti-graft action plan. Organizers
ADB, the OECD and the Japanese government said adopting the plan, drafted by
regional experts earlier this year, would be a significant commitment. Chea
Vannath, director of the Center for Social Development, and Sum Manit, head of
the govern-ment's anti-corruption body, will attend.
