09 Aug,2017



Dhaka, BdChronicle:

Noting that political will is a must to check corruption in the country, executive director of Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) Dr Iftekharuzzaman on Wednesday said it is quite impossible to achieve sustainable development goal-16 (SDG-16) without ensuring good governance and combating corruption.

The aim of SDG-16 is to ensure peace, justice and strong institutions.

“Alongside considering all equal to laws, political will is a must to control corruption and this commitment should be implemented…because there’s no alternative to political will to control corruption,” he said while addressing a human chain programme.

Local chapter of the Berlin-based anti-graft agency arranged the programme in front of the Teachers Students Centre (TSC) of Dhaka University, marking the International Youth Day 2017.
