 In 2011, the Commonwealth Secretariat established the Association of Anti-Corruption Institutions in Commonwealth Africa to bring together Commonwealth Africa Anti-Corruption Agencies’ efforts to fight against corruption, by sharing best practices, training and capacity-building and policy research.

The Conference would bring together the members of the Association of Anti-Corruption Agencies in Commonwealth Africa, senior government officials, relevant international organizations, policy makers, legislators, development partners and resource persons to discuss key priorities aimed at the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions). Participants are expected to share knowledge and best practices in dealing with common challenges and adopt innovative approaches in the fight against corruption.

The Conference has been held annually since its inception in 2011. This will be the second time Ghana is hosting this event. The first was in 2014, a decade ago.

The Commonwealth Secretary-General, The Rt Hon Patricia Scotland QC, will take part as a special guest and deliver welcoming remarks. The President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo will open the week-long Conference.

The Anti-Corruption institutions in Ghana: Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) and the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) are leaving no stone unturned in hosting a successful and memorable Conference.
