The International Anti-Corruption Academy “IACA” elected the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, represented by the Control and Anti-Corruption Authority, to be an active member of the Academy’s Board of Trustees for three years.
This came after the Kingdom joined the Academy’s membership to become one of the founding members of the Academy as an international organization.
This election comes after the prominent local and international efforts made by the Kingdom in the field of protecting the integrity and combating corruption, and its constructive cooperation with relevant regional and international bodies and organizations.
The most recent of which was the Riyadh Initiative (GlobE), which it announced during its presidency of the G20 countries last year 2020, in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and the UN Convention against Corruption, and it received the support of the international community.
The Kingdom is represented in the Academy’s Board of Trustees by the Director-General of the General Administration for Promoting Integrity at the Control and Anti-Corruption Authority, Dr. Shakir bin Ahmed Al-Saleh.
It is worth noting that the Kingdom ratified the International Anti-Corruption Academy Agreement “IACA” in the year 2013, and the Control and Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) represents the Kingdom in the Academy’s meetings and conferences.
(Nazaha) is considered the Kingdom’s official point of contact on issues related to the Academy, as it is an international educational organization. It is concerned with supporting international information efforts to combat corruption, through training and various research.
