Minister for Development Cooperation Ulla Tørnæs will next year on behalf of Denmark host the world’s biggest anti-corruption conference, International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC18). The conference will take place in Bella Center 22-24 October 2018.

The conference will focus on anti-corruption in development cooperation and is arranged in cooperation with Transparency International and the International Anti-Corruption Conference Council.

“It is natural to have this conference in the least corrupt country in the world, and I am looking forward to welcome more than 1,000 participants to the Bella Center,” says Minister for Development Cooperation Ulla Tørnæs and continues:

“Corruption is a significant barrier for fostering development – it is a parasite that undermines the desires of countries to promote democracy, economic growth and stability. Fighting corruption is therefore a prerequisite for the realization of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.”
