On the business side, the pressure of ensuring business continuity, labor management as well as disrubtion to global supply chain, etc. were reasons causing significant impacts on business integrity. In order to overcome obstacles towards sustainable development in the long term, Mr Vinh highlighted that despite the size of businesses whether they were large or small, business integrity should be put at the heart of their operation because it would create a core foundation helping businesses to boost its resilience, attract loyal and new customers as well as the interest of genuine investors, recruit and retain talents in times of crisis. Through this workshop, great efforts of promoting business integrity made by VCCI over the past 10 years were also shared, especially initiatives of Helping SMEs to resist corruption and “Government-Business Integrity Initiative-GBII. These projects were funded by the UK Prosperity Fund through UNDP regional project “Promoting a Fair Business Environment in ASEAN”.
