Project Summary

In Viet Nam at SOM III, the United States and Vietnamese Governments will co-host the APEC Pathfinder Dialogue IV on Fighting Corruption and Illicit Trade across the Asia-Pacific Region. APEC member economies, including representatives of the Anti-Corruption and Transparency Experts Working Group (ACT), the Experts Group on Illegal Logging and Trade (EGILAT), and other relevant and interested APEC sub-fora attending SOM III, will be invited to participate in the 1.5 day event. The Dialogue will also engage with anti-corruption authorities from non-member economies, law and justice officials, and civil society representatives in order to build consensus and partnerships, so different sectors can work together to fight transnational crime, assist legitimate trade, and enhance economic growth.

The APEC Pathfinder Dialogue IV will be held alongside the ACT meetings at SOM III. This workshop will be  designed to identify specific measures APEC economies could implement in order to combat corruption in the following forms of illicit trade:

·  Illegal Logging and Associated Wildlife Habitat Destruction (August 19): Sessions on the first day will explore the regional nature of illegal logging and the destructive toll it can have on wildlife habitat.

.  Wildlife Trafficking (August 20): Sessions on the second day will focus on best practices, proven anti-corruption strategies, and anti-corruption responses used to combat wildlife trafficking. Participants will also learn about new and innovative research conducted in this area.
