Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative proudly announces the signing Ceremony of the International Treaty on Exchange of Data for the Verification of Asset Declaration, which will take place at the Palais Niederösterreich in Vienna, Austria on March 24th, 2020.
The Signing Ceremony will be co-hosted by the Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative and the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs of the Republic of Austria.
The Treaty was developed as a part of the Southeast Europe Regional Programme on Strengthening the Capacity of Anti-corruption Authorities and Civil Society to Combat Corruption and Contribute to the UNCAC Review Process, which is implemented by the Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative (RAI) in partnership with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), with the financial support by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).
The purpose of the International Treaty on Exchange of Data for the Verification of Asset Declarations is to prevent and combat corruption by providing for direct administrative exchange of information concerning asset declarations between the Parties of the Treaty. The Treaty will enable national anti-corruption bodies to communicate formally with each other regarding data on foreign assets and interests, thus significantly enhancing verification of asset declarations.
