With technical help from UNDP, Anti-Corruption Commission held a workshop under the title of “Governance and Business Integrity” in collaboration with Kyin State Government yesterday morning , at Thiri Hpa An Hotel in Hpa-an, Kayin State.
At the event, State Chief Minister Daw Nan Khin Htwe Myint said that the state will cooperate with the commission in fighting corruption as national duty. It is unlikely that corruption can be fought off immediately but by reducing little by little and the public should be wise and ethical to accomplish the task. With collective effort, eradication of drug, littering and corruption will be expended.
Then, the Chairman of the Commission U Aung Kyi said that corruption or unethicality is practice under concealment at governmental departments and in business institutions and has negative impacts on the rule of law and levels of democratic governance. It can also lead to violation of human right, destruction of credibility of governance and businesses, misuse of Public Fund, increase in prices and inequality.
Fighting corruption is not only the job of commission but of private businesses and organizations and individual. To fight corruption, it is important to change oneself first to prevent unethicality. Corruption is the basis of many crimes such as human trafficking, drug trafficking, wild animal smuggling, money laundering, smuggling, and illegal crossing at border points.
If governmental departments, businesses, civilian organization and the public collectively practice zero tolerance of corruption, many networks of crime can be eradicated, he said.
