A meeting was organized to discuss the selection of partner countries for the “Clean Portal Project” of sharing experiences of the implementation and operation of corruption and public interest reporting system with developing countries.
The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (Chairperson Jeon Hyun-Heui, ACRC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) held an online cooperation meeting on September 21 for the designation of partner countries, inviting relevant authorities from 13 developing countries who applied for the participation in the “Clean Portal” project.
“Clean Portal” is a digital system for corruption and public interest reporting in Korea, allowing any citizen to conveniently report corrupt acts and violations of public interests.
In June, the ACRC and the UNDP held an online briefing, inviting 62 relevant officials from 30 developing countries who are interested in the “project sharing digital technology-based anti-corruption system.”
Following the briefing, 13 countries interested in the operative and technical support of Korea’s “Clean Portal” applied for the project.
At the cooperation meeting, an in-depth interview of applicants was carried out and each country’s appropriateness for the project was thoroughly examined in order to select the final two countries.
The ACRC and the UNDP planned to announce the result of the selection of partner countries on September 26. For the next two years, the designated countries will be provided with support for implementation and operation of corruption and public interest reporting system depending on their situation.
The ACRC is in charge of sharing the experiences of the implementation and operation of the system with partner countries while the UNDP takes on the communication among agencies and the overall project management.
In particular, comparative analysis of institutions and systems of partner countries, training focusing on project managers, and “English material on Clean Portal analysis” that other countries other than partner countries can refer to will be provided in order to enhance the effectiveness of technical support.
ACRC Assistant Chairperson of Planning and Coordination Office Lim Yoon-Ju said, “It was a chance to reaffirm great interests and expectations from many countries regarding Korea’s Clean Portal. The ACRC will provide full support for the successful operation and implementation of digital anti-corruption system in the selected partner countries.”
He also said, “We are looking forward for the experiences of implementation and operation of Clean Portal in Korea to be a help for various countries along with partner countries.”
