These calls are still expanding day by day, which gives this conference great importance,” he added.He said GOPAC had made pioneering contribution since it was established in 2002. It plays a vital role in the global campaign against corruption by establishing a global alliance of parliamentarians who work to combat corruption and avoid its economic and political impacts as well as its social cost.He said Qatar supports all international efforts to combat corruption, and stands with all its capabilities with GOPAC and its programmes aimed at eliminating corruption or reducing its effects.
