Meeting with the Austrian Minister of JusticeDuring an official visit on 29 July, IACA´s International Transition Team Chair, Martin Kreutner, exchanged a series of constructive talks with the Federal Minister of Justice of the Republic of Austria, Beatrix Karl.

Discussions primarily related to the Academy´s latest initiatives and activities concerning confirming itself as a primordial international institution for anti-corruption training and research.

As previously expressed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Justice during IACA´s Inaugural Conference last fall, Beatrix Karl reaffirmed IACA´s vital role in combating corruption on the international plane and reasserted the Ministry’s commitment and readiness to continue strongly cooperating with it. Mr. Kreutner again thanked the Austrian people and the Austrian government for supporting and hosting IACA. Furthermore, he expressed hope that Austria would also in the future be among the driving forces in the international anti-corruption arena.
