International Anti-Corruption Day

Ending Corruption Key To Prosperity: UN

Papua New Guinea was one of the first countries in Asia and the Pacific to ratify the Convention, in May 2007. International Anti-Corruption Day raises awareness on corruption and the role of the UNCAC in preventing it. 
PNG’s UN Resident Coordinator, Dirk Wagener said corruption is one of the key obstacles to achieving Sustainable Development Goals. It affects all of society, diverts funds from much needed basic services, leads to inequality and undermines trust in public institutions.
