Public Service and Administration Minister Faith Muthambi will lead a South African delegation to the seventh session of the Conference of State Parties (Cosp) at the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), which will take place between November 6  and 9 in Vienna, Austria.

The Cosp, which meets every two years, was established to improve the capacity of, and cooperation between States parties and to achieve the objectives laid out in the convention.

The objectives include promoting and strengthening measures to prevent and combat corruption more efficiently and effectively; facilitating and supporting international cooperation and technical assistance in the fight against corruption, including asset recovery; and promoting integrity, accountability and proper management of public affairs and public property.

South Africa ratified the UNCAC in November 2004 and became a State party to the convention.

Muthambi will brief delegates at the convention on South Africa’s approach in the fight against corruption and share highlights in terms of the implementation of the convention.

Working groups on prevention, implementation review, international cooperation and asset recovery have been established to enhance States parties’ capacity to implement the articles of the convention.

The role of the working groups is to advise the Conference on various matters for which they are responsible. Working groups’ sessions are held in between the Cosp.
