Saudi shipping giant, Bahri, has become an official member of the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN), a group of more than 110 companies working together to tackle corruption in the maritime industry. Bahri says its membership underlines its strong commitment to the advancement of a culture of integrity in the maritime sector.
Bahri’s decision to join MACN supports Saudi Arabia’s ongoing commitment to zero tolerance of corruption at all levels, as directed in its Saudi Vision 2030 program. A party to the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), the Kingdom aims to become a frontrunner in the international efforts to prevent and fight corruption. Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO of Bahri, said: “With our membership in MACN, we are reaffirming our resolve to work with all stakeholders in tackling bribery and corruption as well as promoting free, fair and open competition in the maritime sector. We are confident that the collective efforts of MACN will accelerate the development of a safe and sustainable shipping and trade ecosystem.”
Headquartered in Riyadh with a global network of offices in Saudi Arabia, UAE, USA, and India, Bahri is the largest owner and operator of VLCCs in the world and the largest owner and operator of chemical tankers in the Middle East.
