The partnership agreement between the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Center (ROLACC) in Doha reflects Qatar's determination to help other countries of the region to fight corruption and support those who fight to combat this scourge.

This move is added to Qatar's leadership in fighting corruption and spreading this culture in the region and the world, noting H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award, which is one of the country's achievements initiated by H.H. to support UN efforts in combating corruption in support of development issues in the countries of the world and to support and encourage those who have taken the task of fighting corruption with financial prizes in recognition of their contributions.

The agreement signed by H.E. Attorney General of the State of Qatar and the United Nations Special Advocate against Corruption, Dr. Ali bin Fetais Al Marri and H.E. Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations and Executive Director of UNITAR Nikhil Seth, highlights its aim to make Doha an anti-corruption training center.

The UN Office, in cooperation with ROLACC, provides advanced training to more than 1,200 trainees from all countries, and aims to build a global base to increase awareness of combating corruption, exchange information between experts and provide many new and distinguished experts worldwide in this field.

This step taken by Doha and the United Nations is an innovative solution to a serious scourge that threatens the development gains in all countries, and was the cause of the uprising of Arab peoples in the face of tyrants in the first and second Arab Spring.
