MoU signing ceremonyIACA further strengthened its ties with the State of Qatar by concluding a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the country’s Administrative Control and Transparency Authority (ACTA) that paves the way for deeper cooperation in education, training, and the exchange of experts.

The MoU was signed in Doha on 19 December 2018 by Mr. Martin Kreutner, IACA’s Dean and Executive Secretary, and H.E. Mr. Hamad bin Nasser Al-Missned, President of ACTA.

“This MoU represents a significant step in IACA’s cooperation with the State of Qatar, and we look forward to working on a range of possible joint activities with ACTA, and to welcoming additional students and participants from the State of Qatar to our future programmes and trainings,” Mr. Kreutner commented.

Furthermore, on 19 and 20 December 2018, IACA delivered a tailor-made anti-corruption training for more than 40 professionals from the Administrative Control and Transparency Authority and several Ministries of the Government of the State of Qatar. Led by expert lecturers in the field, this two-day programme covered global anti-corruption trends and developments, organizational integrity, ethical dilemma case studies, conflict of interest, and other topical issues.

Tailor-made training

Tailor-made trainings are IACA’s customized programmes for specific organizations, corporations, or institutions, addressing the unique challenges that each one faces in preventing and fighting corruption.

The State of Qatar became a Party to the Agreement for the Establishment of IACA as an International Organization (IACA Agreement) on 4 December 2018. In addition, Qatari anti-corruption and compliance professionals are part of IACA’s alumni network of former participants from 161 countries and jurisdictions.
