At the 16th International Anti-Corruption Conference in Malaysia last year we announced that the 17th IACC will be held in Panama in 2016. We are now seeking a host country for the 18th IACC to be held in 2018.
The IACC was founded in 1983 and is the premier global anti-corruption forum bringing together civil society, academia, governments, international organisations and the private sector. The Conference welcomes between 1500-2000 participants and features high-level plenary sessions with global leaders, as well as in-depth working sessions to address anti-corruption problems and solutions.

The Prime Minister perhaps sensibly stayed away from the meeting in the end, but Jose Ugaz, the President of TI, certainly wasn’t going to let him get away that easily, asking publicly in the opening session: “Who paid the money and why? Where did it go?”
