Building a more ethical business environment: Asia-Pacific fraud survey 2013

There is little doubt in most people's minds that doing business in Asia-Pacific carries with it inherent risks, in particular those associated with fraud, bribery and corruption. As Asia-Pacific markets are expected to play a leading role in the global economy over the next decade, companies in these local markets need to develop and effectively deploy local compliance programs and tools that can meet global best practice and can deal with local challenges in order to mitigate the risks of fraud, bribery and corruption.

In 2013, Ernst and Young surveyed 681 executives, senior managers and working-level employees across eight countries on their perceptions of fraud.

This report sheds light on the research findings and provides a basis for discussion for companies undertaking or planning to undertake business in Asia-Pacific.
