According to the AACF website, corruption undermines the enormous efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goals of the African Agenda 2063 and several nations are still suffering from illicit financial inflows.
Noteworthy, the forum aims to provide a platform for African countries to meet on a regular basis to exchange information, experiences and best practices for the purpose of consolidating their national capabilities and institutions in the fight against corruption.
