It is with a heavy heart that the IACC Council, Transparency International, together with our Korean hosts, have decided to postpone the 19th IACC to a later date this year. The 19th IACC will no longer take place from 2 to 5 of June 2020. While being a difficult decision requiring concerted action between all the organisers, our main priority is to protect the health and well-being of our participants, partners, and staff
The government and people of the Korean Republic have been making enormous progress in limiting the spread of the virus in their territory setting an example for countries around the world, yet the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 is a global challenge that is affecting all of us. During these critical times, we need to be kind and supportive. Safety and health take prominence over any other consideration.
We see the postponement as a unique opportunity to foster a global dialogue about the new challenges posed by corruption, to explore solutions and find ways to promote transparency. The current pandemic increases the importance of jointly carving out new strategies to put an end to corruption and improve governance. Therefore, we are currently working hard to find suitable new dates to reschedule the 19th IACC.
We want to thank every one of you for your patience and understanding, and please stay home and healthy. We can do this together!
We very much look forward to welcoming you to the 19th IACC later this year!
