A forum was organized to introduce remarkable anti-corruption systems in Korea and share experiences on the development of such systems with the international community.

 

The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (Chairperson Jeon Hyun-Heui, ACRC) gave a presentation on the development of Korea’s anti-corruption systems, including the implementation of the Prevention of Conflict of Interest Act at the 2nd Tashkent Anti-Corruption Forum online at 4 p.m. on September 23.

 

The “Tashkent Anti-Corruption Forum” is jointly hosted by the Uzbekistan government and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in order to share best practices for the elimination and prevention of corruption.

 

Anti-corruption experts across the world, including international organizations, such as the World Bank, and Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), government agencies, such as the US Drug Enforcement Administration and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, and the International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA), participated in the Forum.

The forum consisted of presentations of participants and discussions on three topics: 1) Openness and transparency as an effective mechanism to combat corruption, 2) Formation of an effective assessment of corruption risks, and 3) Anti-corruption education and enlightenment in the fight against corruption.

 

The ACRC, an anti-corruption agency in Korea, made a presentation on anti-corruption systems in Korea regarding the first topic, “openness and transparency as an effective mechanism to combat corruption.”

 

The presentation was about the development of anti-corruption systems, starting from the enforcement of the Act on the Prevention of Corruption and the Establishment of the Anti-corruption and Civil Rights Commission in 2002, the Public Interest Whistleblower Protection Act in 2011, the Improper Solicitation and Graft Act in 2016, and to the recent enforcement of the Act on Prohibition of False Claim for Public Funds and Recovery of Illicit Profits in 2020 and the Act on the Prevention of Conflict of Interest Related to Duties of Public Servants in 2022.

 

In particular, digital-based policies for enhancing anti-corruption transparency, such as e-People and Clean Portal*, utilizing Korea’s advanced information and communications technology, were introduced.

 

* Clean Portal : a digital system for corruption and public interest reporting in Korea, allowing any citizen to conveniently report corrupt acts and violations of public interests

 

ACRC Assistant Chairperson of Planning and Coordination Office Lim Yoon-Ju said, “According to the 2021 G20 Compendium of Good Practices on Corruption Measurement, Korea timely established a comprehensive anti-corruption system in accordance with the ACRC Act.”

He also said, ”The ACRC will make every effort to actively share the efforts and achievements of anti-corruption policies in Korea with the international community.”
