In its resolution 55/61 of 4 December 2000, the General Assembly recognized that an effective international legal instrument against corruption, independent of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (Resolution 55/25, Annex I) was desirable and decided to establish an ad hoc committee for the negotiation of such an instrument in Vienna at the headquarters of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

UNCAC is a multilateral convention that considered the first global legally binding international anti-corruption instrument.

The Economic Policies Support Forum was established on June 25, 2011. It was held under the invitation and initiative of HE Dr. Talal Abu- Ghazaleh to study the economic situation of the country, issue an economic study in a comprehensive analytical and scientific method supported with data and statistics to be presented to government decision makers.
