DATE: April 17, 2014
TIME: 1:00 pm
One of the main reasons behind the lack of effectiveness and efficiency in anti-corruption programs and measures initiated by several governments, mainly of developing countries, is the lack of a comprehensive and targeted anti-corruption strategy.
Morocco’s Central Authority for Corruption Prevention (ICPC) recommended the design and the effective implementation of a national anti-corruption strategy in Morocco. Subsequently, the ICPC performed a preliminary assessment of corruption and proposed several measures to prevent and fight corruption.
The Moroccan government recently launched the nationwide study for the design of a national anti-corruption strategy. In this interactive event, Mr. Ahmed Yassine Foukara shared the reasons behind the failure of previous anti-corruption initiatives in Morocco as well as the reasons for the success of the current strategy.
He discussed the different approaches and tools Morocco is using to prevent and fight corruption, as well as the importance of finding the right remedies for different countries and regions.
