AMMAN – Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org) representative, Mr. Fadi Al Daoud participated in the National Symposium entitled “Wasta is a Loss of Rights” organized by the Integrity and Anti-Corruption Commission on International Anti-Corruption Day, under the patronage of President of the Jordanian Senate HE Faisal Al-Fayez at Al Hussein Youth City.

In his opening speech, Al-Fayez underlined the directions of His Majesty King Abdullah II promoting the necessity to counter corruption for the achievement of justice, transparency, and the rule of law noting that fighting corruption and Wasta (nepotism) is a national priority.

Chairman of the Integrity and Anti-Corruption Commission, Dr. Mohammed Al-Allaf, said that the annual observance of International Anti-Corruption Day is an essential component of worldwide efforts to combat this global phenomenon and its damaging consequences that have a detrimental effect on the security and stability of developing societies, and negatively impact their economic and development programs.

Al-Allaf noted that the National Strategy for Integrity and Anti-Corruption 2017-2025 was launched last year drawing inspiration from directives by His Majesty King Abdullah II to combat corruption in all forms, adding that the Strategy is also consistent with the content of the National Integrity Charter, its Executive Plan and Jordan Vision 2025 as well as being consistent with national plans to fight corruption.

Al Daoud talked about Governance of Institutions and their Role in National Resource Management, stating that His Majesty King Abdullah II has always been proactive in addressing reform policies including economic transparency in addition to administrative, judicial, legislative and educational reform programs.

He added that the implementation of reform cannot take place in any state or institution without the application of governance based on best practices in management including essential concepts such as teamwork and supporting the concept of partnership with the citizen based on principles of transparency, accountability and responsibility.

He noted that His Majesty honored Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh by appointing him as member of the Royal Integrity Commission, which formulated the National Integrity Charter.  Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh has consistently expressed the importance of this mission for him on a personal level as he has always been involved in the study and examination of transparency laws and standards worldwide to formulate the best standards.

He also underlined TAG-Org’s experience in the field of financial audit and highlighted the need, according to Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh, for internal quality assurance to ensure the quality of work and the importance of an independent internal audit.
