As part of the “Promoting a Fair Business Environment in ASEAN” project, UNDP seeks to promote business integrity and encourage responsible business practices by engaging directly with the private sector and facilitate dialogues between the various stakeholders, including with governments and civil society. To help guide this effort, the project has invited corporate governance and sustainability experts to join the “Private Sector Advisory Group” (PSAG) to advise UNDP on its engagement in this area.

The PSAG was set up in early 2019, and the inaugural meeting took place in April 2019. The members of PSAG are influential experts in their industries, coming from the private sector, investment community, think tanks and governments, in ASEAN countries and beyond. The members serve on the PSAG primarily in their personal capacity, as independent experts, rather than as representatives of their organizations.
