DSC 0025Pakistan has made a generous pledge of financial support to the IACA library, further underlining its strong ties with the organization in the areas of anti-corruption and compliance.

H.E. Ms. Ayesha Riyaz, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to IACA, conveyed the pledge during a meeting in Laxenburg on Thursday with Mr. Martin Kreutner, Dean and Executive Secretary.

IACA is very grateful for this valuable support, which will enable the organization to continue expanding its collection of books and other publications for use by students and staff.

Yesterday’s discussions also explored ways of fostering further cooperation between Pakistan and IACA, including through continued participation by Pakistani professionals in the organization’s programmes and trainings. In this regard Mr. Kreutner updated H.E. Ms. Riyaz on current and upcoming activities at IACA, including the many programmes already scheduled for 2018 (see the latest IACA News Bulletin for more details).

Pakistan acceded to the Agreement for the Establishment of IACA as an International Organization in 2012.
