H.E. President of the Administrative Control and Transparency Authority Hamad bin Nasser Al Missned stressed Saturday that the results of 2019 Global Corruption Perception Index reflect the success of the state in many fields, including transparency and fighting corruption.
He said that these achievements come despite the regional developments, led by the blockade against the country. The President of the Administrative Control and Transparency Authority said that they are always keen on building partnerships with esteemed international organizations as part of the efforts to fight corruption, with International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA) and the Independent Commission Against Corruption in South Korea examples of such cooperation.
He noted that the authority has carried out a number of ambitious projects to enhance transparency in the state, in addition to contributing to international efforts on the matter. He also said that Qatar has become an important destination for experts in the field of fighting corruption. In addition to these efforts, the authority also works on facilitating cooperation between different state entities and international organizations. He highlighted the award of H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani's International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award as one of the leading efforts in that regard, given it was the first international award of its kind in the field. The award ceremony is held every day on World Anti-Corruption Day. The country also continues to look for opportunities to host events on fighting corruption, the President of the Administrative Control and Transparency Authority added.
The Global Corruption Perception Index measures the perceived level of the public sector corruption, which is based on 13 data sources, on experts assessment and business opinions, and its outcome depends on a number of sub-indicators that is issued by prestigious international organizations, including the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, International Institute for Management Development (IMD), the Bertelsmann Foundation and the Economist Financial Information Unit.
The index results show that Qatar is 23 points ahead of the average in the Middle East and North Africa including Arab countries which is 39 points, in light of a large number of countries decline. The organization pointed out earlier the negative impact of developments and factors of political instability and conflicts in the region, and its effect on the decline of many Middle Eastern countries on this indicator ranking.
