ACRC Attended the 2nd 2023 G20 ACWG Meeting

 

- Actively engaged in discussions about high-level principles on promoting the integrity of anti-corruption bodies -

The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC) attended the second 2023 G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group (ACWG) meeting held in India from May 25 to 28 and participated in discussions on the establishment of international principles on anti-corruption.

 

The ACRC attended the second G20 ACWG meeting to actively engage in discussions regarding anti-corruption within the international community.

The G20 ACWG meeting has been an annual event since 2010, serving as a platform for international cooperation in anti-corruption. Every year, the host country selects and presents major anti-corruption agenda, which becomes the key focus of discussions throughout its presidency. Member countries engage in discussions to establish anti-corruption principles, and the outcomes are adopted as an annex to the annual report.

 

The meeting was the second in the series, following the initial meeting held in March 2023. Attendees of the meeting included India, the country currently holding the G20 presidency, delegates from member countries such as Italy, and delegations from invited countries, including Singapore and Mauritius.

 

This year, the meeting focus on discussing the following matters to establish G20 anti-corruption principles: ▲strengthening asset recovery mechanisms related to corruption, ▲strengthening law enforcement cooperation and improving information sharing for fighting corruption, and ▲ promoting integrity and effectiveness of public bodies responsible for preventing and combating corruption.

 

The Korean delegation actively participated in these discussions. In particular, the delegation shared opinions on the necessity of establishing regular anti-corruption strategies and plans based on the assessments and analyses of corruption risks to ensure an effective response to new forms of corruption, with an aim to incorporate such ideas into the anti-corruption principles.

 

ACRC Assistant Chairperson of Planning and Coordination Office Lim Yoon-Ju said, “We will join the efforts for international cooperation in anti-corruption by proactively engaging in discussions on the anti-corruption principles during the G20 ACWG meeting.”
