On June 1-4, 2015, CLDP sponsored a delegation of the Business Integrity Network Afghanistan (BINA) for consultations with various Malaysian anti-corruption institutions in Malaysia. The delegation consisted of BINA Staff and Board members as well as representatives from the Afghan government, private sector, civil society, and media. The consultations were organized in coordination with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC). MACC made various presentations on the topics of the role of education, prevention, and punitive measures in curbing anticorruption. The delegation also met with Transparency International-Malaysia to discuss the Malaysian Corporate Integrity System. In addition, the delegation met with the Public Private Partnerships Unit and Performance Management Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) in the Prime Minister’s Office to discuss the role of government in tackling corruption. The delegation also met with the Malaysian Integrity Institute, which serves as an implementing partner of the government’s anti-corruption strategy, focusing on education and awareness. Finally, the delegation met with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Academy (MACA) where MACA discussed the various anti-corruption courses it offers to government civil servants and maybe willing to offer the Afghans in the future

Upcoming Programs

August 1, 2020 - April 30, 2021

Throughout the quarter, CLDP engaged with numerous experts to prepare and record eight separate sessions on trade topics, specifically designed for Afghanistan’s approximately 25 Commercial Attachés posted throughout the world. In May 2018, CLDP spent one week training the same group of Attachés in a comprehensive course designed for them prior to their departure. This updated training course is intended to provide more advanced training on relevant topics now that the Attachés have been serving in their posts for more than two years.  The topics for these presentations were identified based on consultations with the Attachés and relevant stakeholders in the last quarter. Topics include drafting international contracts, attracting foreign direct investment, negotiation strategies, and two sessions on working trade shows. The series of pre-recorded virtual presentations, including translated copies of the presentations, will be delivered on a rolling basis to the Attachés. In addition, future topics will be recorded and shared with the participants. These virtual recordings will be saved in an online repository, which will be available for any interested party to view, including the private sector.
