The officials came from Albania’s Ministry of Justice, the High Inspectorate of Declaration and Audit of Assets and Conflicts of Interest, the Central Election Commission, and the Supreme Audit Institution.

While on campus the delegation discussed current international anti-corruption issues with IACA staff, as well as change management in an anti-corruption framework.

The Austrian Agency for Economic Cooperation and Development facilitated the visit under a European Union project on anti-corruption in Albania.

IACA has long-standing ties with Albania, which has been a Party to the organization since 2011.

In 2017 IACA delivered a tailor-made training for public officials and representatives of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) from Albania to help strengthen the ability of that country’s institutions to prevent and fight corruption.
