In cooperation with Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA), the Administrative Control and Transparency Authority (ACTA) organised a comprehensive course on Integrity, Ethics and Transparency for public sector employees to enhance their capabilities and to promote integrity, ethics and transparency in the country’s various sectors.
During the programme, the participants learnt about local and international standards of integrity, transparency, ethics, the ‘core values’ of the law, government policy, culture, and integrity violations and the ways to avoid them. They were also able to enhance awareness of the code of conduct, ethical values and the ways of dealing with ambiguous situations.
Hamad bin Nasser al Missned, president of the ACTA, said the training programme came within the framework of the authority’s plan to enhance the capabilities of public sector officials and raise their competencies. It was also part of ACTA’s approach to benefit from national training centres and institutions, such as the Qatar Financial and Business Academy, to familiarise itself with the characteristics of the Qatari work environment.
In his speech at the conclusion of the programme, Dr Khalid al Horr, chief executive officer of QFBA, noted that the growth of the public sector was essential for the development of emerging economies. “Training programmes like this provide public sector professionals with appropriate tools and methodologies to steer their growth trajectory in the right direction. He also stressed the need for cooperation between public sector institutions in order to improve transparency and promote integrity and ethics in the public sector in the country. QFBA aims to deliver customised programmes to various organisations in order to contribute towards realising the vision of a knowledge-based economy,” he said.
The programme concluded with an innovative workshop where the participants tested a realistic scenario and sought practical solutions to the posed challenges.
