Dear Friends:

The National Competitiveness Council, in partnership with the Social Weather Stations, AusAID and Asia Foundation, has completed the 2013 Enterprise Survey on Corruption. The Survey is aimed at measuring the quality of public services as well as the prevalence of corruption in the bureaucracy. It covered 950 businessmen in seven areas with high concentration of business activities.

In this regard, we cordially invite you to the Good Governance Summit 2014 on January 15-17, 2014 at the Philippine International Convention Center, Pasay City, Manila where the NCC will host two break-out sessions, the presentations of ¹Results of the 2013 Annual Enterprise Survey on Corruption and ²Gameplan for Competitiveness 2.0. These sessions are scheduled on January 15 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The survey results will be presented by the SWS President, Mr. Mahar Mangahas while the gameplan will be presented by Mr. Guillermo Luz.

The Summit is being organized by the Department of Budget and Management and the Government Procurement and Policy Board-Technical Service Office, with the theme “Good Governance through an Open Government”. It aims to increase the awareness of the public on good governance reforms of the current administration and encourage stakeholders’ support and participation in pushing forth these reforms. It will highlight the launch of the 2013-2016 GGAC Action Plan, launch of the Open Data Portal, and the celebration of the 10th year of the Procurement Reform Act and the 35th year of the Procurement Service.

The organizers have invited senior officials from government, non-government organizations, and international development partners, such as the World Bank and Asian Development Bank. It will target about 800 to 1,000 participants.
