To improve the quality of the country’s next generation, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura (AP) I held a collaborated workshop on equipping the new generation with integrity in Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara, on Tuesday.
The workshop aims to push the development of individuals with integrity in ministries, non-ministry government institutions, organizations and local administrations.
KPK director for education and public services Sujanarko said, since 2014, the antigraft body had held such a collaboration, which aimed to develop individuals with integrity and was an inseparable part of corruption prevention efforts.
“Currently, 44 ministries, non-ministry government institutions, organizations and local administrations as well as state-owned enterprises have participated in the collaboration on integrity . Several of them have even established integrity committees in their respective institutions. One positive thing from this initiative is, the number of participants in our integrity workshop have continued to increase from year to year,” said Sujanarko on Monday.
Nationally, he said, more than 2,000 individuals with integrity had graduated from their program. Local administrations in several provinces, regencies and municipalities had involved these graduates to create integrity committees at the regional level, he went on.
“The Central Java province, for instance, has established an integrity committee based on a governor regulation in 2015. As a result, two regional budget posts, namely budgetary allocations for official trips and organizing committees of regional events have been managed well,” Sujanarko said.
With the improved management of the two budget posts, he said, extra allowances for all civil servants in Central Java could increase by 400 percent in 2015. (ebf)
