TI PNG COMMENDS PSC ON DEVELOPING ITS ANTI-CORRUPTION & INTEGRITY STRATEGY
The Public Services Commission in partnership with the Transparency International (TIPNG) successfully launched its agency level Anti-Corruption & Integrity Strategy on Friday 28th October, 2022.
Chief Executive Officer of TIPNG Ms. Arianne Kassman commended the Public Services Commission for this milestone achievement towards the state’s efforts in achieving the National Anti-Corruption Strategy 2020-2030.
‘’On this occasion we celebrate the dedication and effort of the Commission in developing your first agency-level anti-corruption strategy. This commitment speaks to the importance the Commission places on ensuring that it is fully equipped to fulfil its mandated functions. As Chairman Sione rightfully states in the foreword, the strategy we are launching today is home grown and specifically tailored for the Public Services Commission.
“We at TIPNG fully support the key objectives of the strategy, notably the fostering of an anti-corruption culture in PSC. The PSC in the Strategy identifies that it has a moral obligation to perform its role free of corruption, and this ethos should be shared across all state agencies in PNG,” said Ms Kassman.
This initiative was made possible by TIPNG with funding from the European Union, through the Promoting Anti-Corruption & Integrity Strategies (PAIS) Project. The overall objective of this project is to strengthen public trust in state agencies.
