In New York, USA on November 6, 2018 CCC participated in the Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI) Community Fall Meeting.

The World Economic Forum (WEF), based in Switzerland, is an International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. The Forum engages political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas with the aim of improving the state of the world.

Every year, WEF brings together top business leaders, international political leaders, economists, journalists and celebrities for up to four days to discuss the most serious issues facing the world.

The organization also provides a platform for its members in sector-specific initiatives. One such initiative, that CCC is a founding member of, is the Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI).

In an effort to combat corruption, PACI was launched by CEOs from the engineering, construction, energy, metals and mining industries during the annual meeting that was held in Davos in January 2004. Presently, approximately 140 top companies are members of the PACI initiative. PACI has become the prime business channel on transparency and anti-corruption.
