Corruption has a negative impact on political, social-economic, cultural
development of the society. It is a fundamental social phenomenon to the
governments, individuals, organizations and countries, including developed and
developing countries. Transparency International highlights 3 important purposes
of combating the corruptions which are: rule of law, higher life quality and
conditions for societal development. As corruption is a true enemy of economic
development in southeast asia countries. it is imperative for the anti-corruption
measures to form the paramount part of ASEAN’s agenda to ensure future growth
and prosperity. A greater effort should be called for by ASEAN leaders to put
transparency and anti-corruption activities in their inter-regional ministerial agenda
and the ASEAN Community Vision 2025. This is to enable the promotion of
greater transparency and the fight against corruption which could help ASEAN
attain a smoother and more sustainable level of political, economic, and sociocultural
integration. Hence, this paper objectively focuses on identifying the best
practice of anti-corruption initiatives among Asian countries. Consequently, this
finding can bring positive impacts to the development of anti-corruption initiatives
in Malaysia and may benefit the whole nation.
