The Administrative Control Authority deems enhanced training that utilizes modern methods key to fostering national capabilities in the fight against corruption across all sectors. With the firm belief that such endeavors are facilitated through continuous training and awareness promoted through modern methods.
The Egyptian Anti-Corruption Academy, entrusted with promoting anti-corruption training, has always been the ACA’s gateway to promulgate integrity and transparency; provide anti-corruption training, and bolster capacities to combat corruption. EACA’s efforts have also extended to cover regional and international spheres, making it a trusted source for those who wish to be equipped with anti-corruption knowledge and methods to prevent its spread. Hence, the EACA works relentlessly to provide a wide array of services in that regard, including top-notch training and research through an integrated and advanced system.
The period from April to June witnessed a number of activities in the Academy, namely the reception of Judge Charles Duchaine, Head of the French Anti-Corruption Agency, at the headquarters of the Academy, where First Under-Secretary Khaled Abdul Rahman, Assistant to the Chairman of Administrative Control Authority for the Egyptian Anti Corruption Academy Affairs and International Cooperation received the Judge and the accompanying delegation.
The meeting reviewed the role of the Academy in raising community awareness; promoting the culture of preventing and combating corruption; as well as holding training courses in various fields. They also discussed coordination between the two sides through practical steps to exchange experiences pertinent to community awareness to reduce corrupt practices across all segments of society, including the private sector. This, in addition to discussing the potential for joint bilateral cooperation.
In light of the ACA’s actions against corruption, namely Aligning with National Bodies, the EACA held a training course for Military Attachés and their spouses, in coordination with the General Intelligence Service represented by the Military Attachés Service. The course tackled the Administrative Control Authority’s frameworks in preventing and combating corruption and shed light on some of the cases in the field of combating corruption and human trafficking.
In an effort to raise awareness of the dangers of corruption and nurture rejection of corrupt practices in society, the EACA, in collaboration with the National Council for Persons with Disabilities, held two training sessions on the fight against corruption. The courses addressed the ACA’s anti-corruption frameworks in preventing, and combating corruption, and touched on digital transformation; Egypt’s information infrastructure; and the impact of anti-corruption efforts and the fourth and fifth-generation warfares on national security.
Sharing Egypt's experience in preventing and combating corruption with partners from different countries, First Under-Secretary Khaled Abdul Rahman, Assistant to the Chairman of ACA for the Egyptian Anti Corruption Academy Affairs and International Cooperation, received the French police delegation in the presence of the Director of the Academy and members of the Administrative Control Authority from different oversight units. The meeting included an overview of the Administrative Control Authority and the EACA and their role in preventing and combating corruption and providing relevant training. The meeting delved into one of the cases the ACA handled, and further discussed prospects for future cooperation in areas of mutual concern.
As the EACA works tirelessly to develop its services, it signed a contract with the National Bank of Egypt to facilitate electronic payments for the training and educational services provided to its trainees. The contract was signed by First Under-Secretary Khaled Abdel Rahman, Assistant to the Chairman of ACA for the EACA Affairs and International Cooperation, and Mr. Yahya Aboul Fotouh, Deputy Chairman of the National Bank of Egypt. The payment system will be made available through the Academy's official website using the bank's electronic payment portal.
These efforts are but a glimpse of the EACA’s agenda to instill integrity and transparency into Egypt’s administrative bodies, in order to preempt the forces of corruption that seek to undermine the development of the nation.
