Anti-Corruption Conference Held in Belize

A National Conference on “The Inter-American Convention against Corruption and its Implementation in Belize” will take place in Belize City on August 26.


The conference is part of a hemispheric initiative by the Organisation of American States (OAS), stemming from Summit of the Americas and OAS General Assembly mandates to promote the incorporation of the anti-corruption treaty’s provisions into national criminal legislation and to facilitate the convention’s application and implementation. 
The conference is being organised by the OAS Secretariat for Legal Cooperation. Participants will examine a report prepared specifically for the meeting and review draft legislation that will serve as a foundation for the discussions.
