April 15, 2022 | Colin O. Jarrett |

Trinidad and Tobago is the first Commonwealth country to benefit from training programmes for government officials in its recently-launched anti-corruption framework.

The Commonwealth Secretariat, in partnership with the Global Infrastructure Anti-Corruption Centre and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, last year published a landmark set of measures to support efforts to fight corruption.

As the first country to pilot the Commonwealth Anti-Corruption Benchmarks, local officials and law enforcement officers joined a two-day workshop aimed at helping the government and public sector organizations assess their anti-corruption laws, regulations, policies and procedures against international good practice and consider implementing appropriate improvements.
