The National Conference on the Fight against Corruption opened works, on Thursday in Tunis, on the theme: “United against corruption in service of development, peace and security.” National Anti-Corruption Authority (French: INLUCC) President Chawki Tabib said the event is an opportunity to take stock of the efforts exerted in the fight against this phenomenon. “The organisation of a national conference on the fight against corruption reaffirms the firm political will to combat this phenomenon and implement the various points defined in the Document of Carthage, which considers the fight against corruption a top priority,” he stated at the opening of this two-day gathering which will be crowned by the adoption of a national strategy of good governance and fight against corruption. This strategy is a reference document committing the various national actors (judges, politicians, journalists and civil society) in this process, according to a well-defined roadmap, he explained. “The fight against corruption should not be reduced to mere empty slogans,” said Civil Service and Governance Minister Abid Briki. “The establishment of a system of good governance to combat corruption is a shared responsibility between all actors and that requires the reform of the administration and the civil service sector,” he pointed out. “Several good governance units have already been created in all ministries to monitor the department’s action programme in the fight against corruption,” Briki specified.
