Anti-graft meet to kick off next week

Under the aegis of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, the International Anti-Corruption Conference kicks off in Riyadh next Sunday at the Intercontinental Hotel.
The event, under the theme “Anti-corruption, a responsibility of everyone,” is being organized by the National Anti-corruption Commission (ACC) or Nazaha with the participation of several global leading specialists in the field of anti-corruption measures.
In December last year, ACC also organized the UN Anti-Corruption Day to draw attention to the negative impact of corruption on government systems globally.
The commission head, Dr. Khalid Al-Muhaisin, ACC president expressed gratitude for the patronage of King Salman. He described it as a reflection of his keen interest to strengthen measures being implemented by various institutions in the Kingdom to stop corruption.
He further said that the ACC values the importance of sharing experiences with organizations and international agencies specialized in this field.
Al-Muhaisin invited a number of experts from both Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states, Arab and international personalities who are involved in the field of anti-corruption, transparency and control measures.
He said this high profile event aims to take advantage of the experiences of countries in preventing corruption. The conference will discuss topics related to the judicial and supervisory bureaus and their role in society.
The conference seeks to highlight the importance of civil society institutions and their role in promoting integrity. He said that the media, which has a significant role in promoting values of integrity and anti-corruption, will highlight the international experiences in this regard.
Al-Muhaisin has invited business representatives (both male and females), officials, media and all stakeholders to attend the event.
