Compliance and Integrity on February 1st, 2019 in The Hague. The event focused on taking a practical approach and shedding some light on specific issues and questions. The World Bank explained the major do’s and don’ts when working with the Bank and what it means to be under investigation.

The event was well attended and well received by the audience which comprised mainly of the Dutch private sector. The insights and openness of the participants helped the audience understand the issues that arise and more importantly how to proceed in those cases.

Within the World Bank Group The Integrity Vice Presidency (INT) is the independent unit that investigates and pursues sanctions related to allegations of fraud and corruption in World Bank Group-financed projects. INT supports the main business units of the World Bank Group and external stakeholders, mitigating fraud and corruption risks through sharing investigative findings, advice, prevention and outreach efforts.
