Pacific Leaders and representatives have adopted a ground-breaking Teieniwa Vision during the region’s first ever Leaders’ Pacific Regional Anti-Corruption Conference, hosted by Kiribati President Taneti Maamau.
Following the two-day Pacific Unity Against Corruption Conference held in Tarawa last week, Leaders and representatives endorsed commitments that built on their national engagement with the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Documents of the Teieniwa Vision was signed by leaders and heads of delegations on Wednesday evening during the official closing and farewell reception at the House of Parliament in Ambo.
Teieniwa Vision recognized the importance of strong leadership and building political will in order to tackle corruption.
“We have called on all Pacific Leaders to champion integrity, advocating for and implementing best anti-corruption practices through commitment to criminalisation of corruption and prompt, impartial investigation and prosecution,” said President Maamau.
This statement will be discussed and endorsed first by Leaders of the Pacific Islands Forum in the upcoming Forum Meeting in Vanuatu this year.
After endorsement, the statement can provide guidance as Pacific countries look to enhancing regional frameworks to tackle corruption and a unified position in preparation for the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on anti-corruption in April 2021.
