Today, the EU Delegation to Afghanistan launched its 2018 Anti-Corruption Campaign.

Today, the EU Delegation to Afghanistan launched its 2018 Anti-Corruption Campaign. It aims at highlighting the impact of corruption in three critical sectors: Development, Economic Growth and Elections. The campaign runs for three weeks and culminates with a high-level anti-corruption conference in Mid-April.

"Afghanistan has witnessed further steps in the fight against corruption in 2017 such as prosecution of some cases by the Anti-Corruption Justice Centre and the launch of the national anti-corruption strategy. But more needs to be done to fight this scourge: strategies and plans need to be translated into firm actions. People should see the difference. Corruption questions Afghanistan´s ability to become self-reliant" says the Head of European Union Delegation to Afghanistan, Ambassador Pierre Mayaudon.

The EU anti-corruption campaign will address three themes:

  • Corruption and development,
  • Corruption and private sector,
  • Corruption and elections,

The campaign can be followed via the EU's Delegation's Facebook and Twitter pages.
