INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) together with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (Kadin) Indonesia agreed together to prevent corruption in the private sector. The agreement was stipulated in a memorandum of understanding signed by the two institutions in Riz Carlton Hotel, Kuningan, South Jakarta, Tuesday (3/10/2017) today.

"This memorandum of understanding is to support the private sector in order to fight anti-bribery," said Deputy Chief of KPK Laode Muhammad Syarif at the signing. KPK also wants to help Kadin not to be extorted by the government, to be open and objective when participating in the tender.

The signing of a memorandum of understanding between the KPK and the Chamber of Commerce was held during the Kadin National Coordination Meeting. Syarif said the signing of this cooperation is an implementation of the talks that have been done both parties so far.

Syarif acknowledged KPK was late to prevent corruption in the private sector. The KPK, Syarif said, wants to imitate the efforts of Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) which focuses on preventing corruption in the private sector.

Vice Chairman of Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin Indonesia) Anindya Bakrie said private sector corruption prevention cooperation has been elaborated in the understanding. "Prevention is just as important as repression, because it takes two sides for corruption, not just power holders like the government."

This cooperation, said Anindya, is very appropriate. Rakornas Kadin was attended by delegates from 34 provinces. "So we see this a good moment to support the KPK," she concluded.
