ENHANCEMENT OF GOVERNANCE, INTEGRITY AND ANTI-CORRUPTION IN THE GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION MANAGEMENT OF MALAYSIA
The approach for the enhancement of governance, integrity and anti-corruption is established to transform Malaysia into a developed nation with integrity and good governance at its core. To achieve this goal, the mission set is to increase efficiency and transparency in government management, focusing on three main areas, namely strengthening of governance, integrity enhancement and anti-corruption.
In relation to this, the Prime Minister’s Directive No. 1 of 2018, The Enhancement of Governance, Integrity and Anti-corruption in the Management of the Malaysian Government Administration: National Mechanism for the Management of Governance, Integrity and Anti-corruption is drafted and enforced beginning 5th October 2018. Two driving committees were formed, which are the Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption (JKKMAR) and the Anti-Corruption Committee (JAR).
MACC through the Agency Integrity Management Division, and then replaced by the Public Sector Governance Division, is the secretariat for National-level JAR and a Joint Secretariat for JKKMAR with the National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption (GIACC).
