About this event

Local construction industry involves substantial expenditure, multi-layer subcontracting as well as various procurement methods. Moreover, there are many Chinese festive customs that involve offering presents and money as traditions. These features can be incentives for corruption, and it may be difficult for young members, who are new or about to join the industry, to determine where the border is.

ICE members are expected to remain ethical in their professional practice. Candidates sitting Chartered Professional Review will be assessed on ethics as one of the nine attributes.
