On 20th June, the MACN — a global business network of over 110 companies working together to tackle corruption in the maritime industry — announced a new partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, and one of the fruits of this partnership will be to allow MACN to develop and launch the first-ever Global Port Integrity Index. This will provide an overview and comparison of illicit demands in ports around the world, and will be based on the unique first-hand data gathered from captains calling port around the world through MACN’s Anonymous Incident Reporting Mechanism. To date, MACN has collected over 28,000 reports of corruption in ports.
