Heads of anti-corruption agencies and state integrity commissions from Commonwealth countries across the Caribbean are meeting this week to discuss the fight against corruption.
The conference, being held under the theme ‘Transforming Words into Action: Revitalising the Fight Against Corruption’, will see panel discussions covering corruption in sports, modernising legislative frameworks, the investigative battle against corruption and new technologies to combat corruption.
“I believe we all have a lot to learn and share in both the development and implementation of meaningful and effective strategies for controlling corruption,” said the Rosie Myles, chairperson for Cayman’s Commission for Standards in Public Life (CSPL).
The conference is sponsored by the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation, the Commonwealth Secretariat, CSPL and the Cayman Islands government.
