As Kenya prepares to observe the International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD) tomorrow, other countries around the world will also be marking the day, among them the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In an indication that the world is collectively fighting the vice, the Saudi Oversight and Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) will host a conference in accordance with IACD, which takes place on 9th December annually.
Like its counterpart, the Kenya Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), the Saudi anti-graft authority tackles corruption in the public sector.
The anti-graft body is working to help digitize government services in a bid “to enhance integrity and transparency” in the Kingdom.
The online forum will draw lessons from best practices used locally and internationally for protecting integrity and transparency in areas of public expenditure, specifically ways to increase transparency by increasing the use of digitization in services provided by the public sector.
Nazaha fights corruption and increases transparency by prioritizing the exchange of knowledge and expertise, building international partnerships and working with the international community.
The online event which will be held tomorrow, Thursday 9th December, is the 10th conference organized by the authority aimed at building international partnerships and combating corruption in accordance with international law.
A number of anti-corruption experts from various public and private agencies within the Kingdom will speak during the event.
