FILTER BY COUNTRY & ORGANISATION -or- ISSUE AREA:
NEW ZEALAND

86 per cent of New Zealand’s 7 commitments are in play, with only 1 left inactive.

It is unclear whether New Zealand’s commitment to explore establishing an accessible and central database of companies with final convictions for bribery and corruption offences, and ways of sharing information on corrupt bidders across borders, has seen any progress. There is no publicly available information on concrete action to explore the possibility of a central database.

However, New Zealand’s commitment to work with international sports bodies to develop a partnership for combatting corruption in sport is complete. Although New Zealand has not yet joined the International Sports Integrity Partnership, they are monitoring its progress and may consider joining it in the future.

The remainder of New Zealand’s commitments are underway. The pledge to explore the establishment of a public register of company beneficial ownership information has made limited progress, but with no clear deadline it is hard to properly measure.  The pledge to deny entry to specific individuals who are identified as being involved in grand corruption is also difficult to measure as sufficient laws and mechanisms to do this already exist, but New Zealand continues to attract wealthy individuals.
