NZ Inc. Anti-Corruption Training Initiative


NZ Inc. Anti-Corruption Training Initiative

Come along and celebrate matariki with a warm breakfast and an opportunity to network with others who are working to address corruption in New Zealand through knowledge, good governance and by building strong integrity systems

Launch of free Anti-Corruption Training

All New Zealanders should be proud of our very low levels of perceived public sector corruption.

Conversely, the level of interaction New Zealand businesses and public sector organisations are having with parts of the world where corruption is commonplace is at an all-time high. This inevitably means the pressure to keep New Zealand corruption free and to protect New Zealand businesses from falling foul of anti-corruption legislation continues to climb.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear about some free online and in-person training that has been put together by experts in the field. This practical support will help better protect New Zealanders from exposure to bribery and corruption risk.

Please join Ministers Hon Anne Tolley, Hon Craig Foss and your peers (or recommend a colleague in your place) in either Auckland or Wellington for these unique events:

Sky City : Auckland Convention Centre Cost Jumps By A Fifth

SkyCity Entertainment Group, the casino and hotel operator, is in talks with the government on how to fund the increased cost of as much as $130 million to build an international convention centre in downtown Auckland, with further gambling concessions ruled out. The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
