NAZAH 111216IACA has further strengthened its cooperation with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Sunday with the country’s National Anti-Corruption Commission (Nazaha).

Mr. Martin Kreutner, IACA’s Dean and Executive Secretary, signed the MoU with Nazaha’s President, H.E. Dr. Khalid Abdulmohsen Al-Mehaisen, in the framework of the high-level International Anti-Corruption Day Forum in Al Khobar. This followed the delivery of IACA’s first tailor-made anti-corruption training for Nazaha in Riyadh last month.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia became a Party to the Agreement for the Establishment of IACA as an International Organization in 2013, making it the first country from the region and from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to do so. Kuwait and the Kingdom of Bahrain have also acceded to the organization since then.

In addition, the Forum in Al Khobar included panel discussions on the anti-corruption efforts of the public and private sectors.
