Celebrating International Anti-Corruption Day 2023: ABAC Group™ Stands Strong in the Battle Against Corruption!
International Anti-Corruption Day, observed annually on December 9th, serves as a stark reminder for entities within and outside the corporate world to actively fight against corruption. The day’s significance is rooted in the founding of Transparency International by Peter Eigen, a World Bank official who recognized the pervasive impact of corruption in East Africa. Established in Berlin in 1993, Transparency International has grown to host the biennial International Anti-Corruption Conference, bringing together diverse stakeholders to address corruption’s multifaceted challenges.
The United Nations General Assembly‘s adoption of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption in 2003, which established International Anti-Corruption Day, marks a pivotal moment in international law. This Convention, a comprehensive legal framework, obliges states to undertake a broad spectrum of anti-corruption measures, ranging from criminalization to international collaboration and asset recovery. This observance galvanizes global action, urging governments, civil society, and individuals to commit to transparency, integrity, and accountability in public affairs.
