MACN celebrates the passing of a new regulation as a successful outcome of its collective action in Argentina. The new regulation modernizes the inspections system for dry cargo and has the potential to dramatically increase the efficiency of port clearances.
We were delighted to welcome over 90 participants to the second MACN Members Meeting of 2017, which took place in London on October 11-12.
One major theme of the meeting was that "Collective Action Works!" - MACN members shared numerous testimonies of tangible impacts of anti-corruption efforts in locations including Argentina, Nigeria, and the Suez Canal. MACN was also delighted to welcome a number of new members, and to have Brendan Hawley join the Steering Committee as an Associate Member representative.
MACN members will receive a summary of the meeting outcomes next week. Many thanks to all members for your active and engaged participation!
