South Korea: Korea to host world’s largest anti-corruption forum

More than 3,000 policy experts and civic group members from 140 countries will discuss measures and international cooperation on rooting out corruption in the public and private sectors in the world’s largest global forum on anti-corruption policies.

Korea will host the 19th International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) from Dec. 1 to 4, according to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC).

The biennial conference will be held via video link this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with only participants from Korea gathering at the COEX in southern Seoul.

Co-hosted by the ACRC and Transparency International (TI), the 19th IACC will include senior government officials, experts from NGOs and international organisations, and CEOs of global companies from 140 countries. President Moon Jae-in will share Korea’s anti-corruption efforts and achievements through an online welcoming speech at the opening ceremony.
