By BBN Staff: The constituted Ministry of the Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform (MPSCPR) issued a statement today saying that it recognizes the International Anti-Corruption Day 2020, observed under the theme, “Recover with Integrity to Build Forward Better”.
“Prime Minister John Briceño and the new administration has committed to fast track the implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) to which Belize acceded on December 12, 2016. Reducing the risks of corruption and mismanagement will require the involvement of strong anti-corruption bodies, better oversight bodies, a more open and transparent public procurement and enhanced anti-corruption compliance,” the Ministry noted.
The theme, which calls governments to “recover with integrity” highlights that only by implementing effective corruption mitigation measures, will a better recovery be possible.
The Ministry of the Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform says that the Ministry and Minister Henry Charles Usher stand in solidarity with other nations to fight corruption and recognize the International Anti-Corruption Day 2020.
