Oman Participates in UN Meetings to Enhance Anti-Corruption Efforts
The Sultanate of Oman, represented by the State Audit Institution (SAI), is actively participating in a series of United Nations (UN) meetings aimed at enhancing international cooperation and anti-corruption efforts. These meetings, organized by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime in Vienna, cover a range of topics, including the review of chapters of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), information technology’s role in combatting corruption, and best practices in asset recovery.
Meetings and Commitment
The 14th Resumed Session of the Implementation Review Group (IRG), the 17th Session of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group on Asset Recovery, and the 12th Open-ended Intergovernmental Experts meeting are all part of Oman’s commitment to global anti-corruption efforts.
Reviewing UNCAC Chapters and Promoting Multilateral Cooperation
A central focus of these meetings is the discussion of the fourth and fifth chapters of the UNCAC, which pertain to international cooperation and asset recovery. Delegates will engage in conversations about using information and communication technology to implement the Convention effectively. Additionally, non-binding guidelines will be explored to enhance multilateral international cooperation, especially in preventing, identifying, investigating, and prosecuting corruption during emergencies and crises.
Sharing Experiences and Challenges
During the sessions, participants will have the opportunity to share good practices, experiences, and challenges related to establishing efficient financial disclosure systems for public officials. The international asset recovery process will also be a key topic of discussion, aiming to improve global strategies in this area.
Capacity Building and Practical Exercises
In conjunction with these meetings, a training course will be conducted for focal points and government experts who will participate in the second session of the mechanism for reviewing the implementation of the UNCAC. This training will focus on self-evaluation audit methodologies, and practical exercises will allow participants to apply what they have learned.
Oman’s Commitment to Anti-Corruption Initiatives
The meetings organized by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime provide a valuable platform for countries like Oman to collaborate, exchange ideas, and enhance their anti-corruption efforts. By participating in these sessions and engaging with the international community, Oman and other nations aim to create a more transparent, accountable, and corruption-free world.
