The Africa Business Ethics Conference (ABEC) is a business-community-led global forum for convening a broad stakeholder group that for the first time includes the private sector in Africa to address the complex and peculiar challenges posed by corruption in the host country and in the region. ABEC takes place annually in one African country convening global and regional experts, civil society, the media, and policy makers along with the organized private sector.
