International Anticorruption Conference To Be Held in Bangkok, Thailand This Week

The city of Bangkok, Thailand will host the 14th annual International Anti-Corruption Conference this week from November 11-13, 2010.  The IACC is the premier forum that brings together public and private stakeholders to discuss ways to combat transnational criminal threats and illicit trade.  U.S. President Obama has said “…[transnational crime] can undermine stability and security, fuel violence and corruption, weaken the rule of law, and subvert legitimate economies.”  According to the U.S. State Department, at the G20 Leaders' Summit in Seoul, Korea from November 11-12, "President Obama will join the other G20 Leaders in endorsing an Action Plan on Anti-Corruption, which contains a set of comprehensive and concrete steps to enhance cooperation in the fight against corruption and illicit trade."
