Mexico Bets on TransparencyBy
International standards to prevent conflicts of interests.
As part of the new measures Mexico is implementing in order to prevent cases of conflict of interest, the country is readying a set of anti-corruption protocols which will bring it closer to “international standards”.
This is what Eduardo Bojórquez, head of Mexican Transparency, expressed in a press conference for the Mexican news agency, Notimex. The organization Bojórquez heads is the Mexican delegation of the larger scale non-governmental organization Transparency International.
According to Bojórquez, little by little Mexico is getting closer in its standards to other countries that attended the latest G20 summit which took place in early February in the coastal town of Los Cabos, Baja California Sur.
This Summit gathers heads of state, leaders of central banks and finance ministers from different countries, many of which have been successful at implementing policies oriented towards transparency.
The government will be required to present a declaration of assets by May 9. Bojórquez added that this should be made public in order to prevent cases of conflict of interests.
Among the strategies that will be implemented is a code of conduct that government officials will have to abide by when dealing with the private sector.
The director indicated that the Business Coordination Council of Mexico, showed willingness among its membership to implement these codes of conduct.
