 May 11, 2017
Anti-corruption has the noble objective that will guarantee for protecting global peace, helping to bring about development, international cooperation and just and fair society, said by U Mya Win, chairman of anti-corruption commission, at the (SEA—PAC)South East Asia Parties Against Corruption’s 13th secretariat meeting held in Nay Pyi Taw at 9 am yesterday.

Anti-corruption is concerned not only with every individual, every institution and each country but also the global community. Each and every one of the member countries of SEA—PAC must implement the two major objectives of the (SEA—PAC). It includes strengthening the cooperation for fighting against corruption between member countries; and exchange of news and information, training for upgrading the abilities of skilled persons, sending professionals and staff from anti-corruption-related sectors, attending conferences, workshops and meetings and providing necessary technical aids for practical implementation, based on establishment of organizations for fighting against corruption and up-gradation of capacities.”

The chairman went on to say, “Our country joined the SEA—PAC on November 14, 2013, attending regular meetings & office meetings held annually. And, it has been performing tasks of fighting against corruption in the region hand in hand with each other. SEA—PAC Action Plan (2017-2019) (draft) has been approved by member countries, under the approved discussions in 12th meeting.”

Afterward, those present at the meeting approved discussions of 12th secretariat meeting and made discussions, addition and amendment of discussions of 12th annual meeting, followed by clarification of performance of fighting against money laundering in Myanmar from responsible officials of the Ministry and Anti-corruption Commission.
