Cabinet forms committee to review corruption, transparency indices
March 13, 2018, 9:01 am

The cabinet has formed a committee to review indices of governance reform, sustainable development and transparency. It will also design necessary mechanisms and make due arrangements to promote Kuwait's status on the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).

This will be conducted in line with the criteria of transparency and integrity and respect of the law and freedoms to which Kuwait is committed.

During a routine meeting at Bayan Palace Monday, chaired by His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, the cabinet expressed indignation over Kuwait's decline on the CPI 2017, which has harmed the State of Kuwait's reputation.

The committee has been formed out of keenness on promoting indices of governance reform, sustainable development and transparency as well as other relevant ones, said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Anas Al-Saleh after the meeting.

The Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha) will lead the newly-formed committee that will comprise, as members, representatives from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Finance, Justice, Social Affairs, Commerce and Industry, and Information.

It will also include the General Secretariat of the Supreme Council for Planning and Development (GSSCPD), the Central Agency for Public Tenders (CAPT), the Kuwaiti Financial Intelligence Unit (KwFIU) and other related state agencies.

Today the ministers reviewed a letter from Nazaha (Integrity) on the authority's efforts for preparing and executing the National Anti-Corruption Strategy, in line with an agreement signed between the UN Development Program (UNDP) and the GSSCPD.

The cabinet ordered government bodies to present all forms of support to Nazaha to realize the aspired goals.
