Kuwait learns how to fight graft from Seoul

Korea’s corruption watchdog announced Thursday it signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) to share knowledge on anticorruption.

The Anti-Corruption & Civil Rights Commission (ACRC) said that the agreement was signed Wednesday while Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon was visiting the Arab country. Through the MOU, the ACRC expects both agencies will share policies, experiences and information on anticorruption; develop capacity-building training and education programs for agency staff; assist joint meetings such as seminars and workshops; and cooperate in areas that require mutual cooperation. Kuwait is the fourth Arab country where Korea’s anticorruption policies will be shared, the ACRC said.

“Successful anticorruption cooperation between Korea and Kuwait will not only contribute to strengthening anticorruption capacities of both nations, but also help create a better business environment for Korean companies in Kuwait at a time when an increasing number of Korean companies are doing business in Kuwait,” said Lee Geon-lee, vice chairperson of the ACRC, who signed the MOU.
