A seven member high level delegation from the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka are in the country for a five-day experience sharing visit, a press release from the ACC states.

The delegation is in the country to learn from the tools, techniques and best practices/experiences of Bhutan in preventing and combating corruption. The visit is also expected to complement their current initiative of designing national-level action plan towards eliminating bribery and corruption in Sri Lanka.

While in the country, the delegates will call on the Prime Minister, the Speaker, the Chief Justice and the Attorney General. These meetings will underscore the strong political will that Bhutan enjoys in the fight against corruption.

This is the seventh high-level delegation received by the ACC since 2010 from its counterpart anti-corruption agencies of six countries in the region.  Such visits provide opportunities to build collaboration in jointly fostering cooperation in the prevention of and fight against corruption.

The delegation, led by the Attorney General, comprises of the Secretary to the President, Commissioner and Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption, Secretary to the Special Presidential Task Force on Recovery of State Assets and two Secretaries of the Ministry of Public Administration and Management and the Ministry of Provincial Council and Local Government.
