Welcome to IAACA
It is my greatest honour to be elected as the President of the International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities (IAACA). The success of the IAACA is built on the unwavering commitment and contribution of my predecessors. I must also express my deepest gratitude to the Procurators-General of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate of China, which held the founding presidency of the IAACA for the first ten years, a period of which is extremely critical to the development of the Association. I would also like to convey my sincere thanks to Dr Ali Fetais Al-Marri, former Attorney-General of Qatar for his tremendous contribution to the Association during his presidency for the past five years. With the capable leadership of the past presidents, the wholehearted support of all the members of the Executive Committee and the professional assistance of the Secretariat during their tenures, as well as the active participation of all members and friends of the Association, the IAACA has built a solid foundation for now and the future.
The IAACA was found in 2006 as the first global institution for the anti-corruption agencies worldwide. In the past fifteen years, the Association has been instrumental in promoting the effective implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and fostering international anti-corruption collaboration. It is my great honour to represent the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) of Hong Kong, China to contribute further to the IAACA and its meaningful missions. During my tenure as President of the IAACA, my colleagues and I will work closely with the new Executive Committee to sustain the IAACA's existing programmes, implement new initiatives and chart a clear way forward for the Association. We will deepen members' communication and collaboration through the new Regional Coordination Mechanism. The Association will be more involved in different international avenues and platforms. The new Secretariat will also be hosted by the Hong Kong ICAC, and it will be operated with the necessary manpower and resources. Our ultimate aim is to work closely with members, advisers, observers and partners alike to strengthen the Association's role as the focal point of international anti-corruption collaboration, and to enable the IAACA to take centre stage of the international anti-corruption mission.
We treasure your views and suggestions throughout this meaningful journey. We also look forward to your continuing countenance to the Association's affairs, in order to achieve our goal to build a fair and corruption-free world.
President of IAACA
