Govt Prioritises Technology To Strengthen Integrity And Anti-Corruption Measures, Says Fadillah

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof reaffirmed the government commitment to leveraging technology to bolster integrity, good governance, and anti-corruption measures.

He highlighted the potential of e-Government services, blockchain applications, and data analysis in fostering transparency and accountability in both public and private sectors.

Speaking at the Integrity, Governance, and Anti-Corruption Awards (AIGA) 2023 ceremony, Fadillah emphasised the significance of embracing technological advancements to revolutionise integrity and governance practices. He referenced the Tech for Integrity (T4I) platform by the World Economic Forum as a potential model to accelerate corruption prevention efforts.

“Maybe the Tech for Integrity (T4I) platform under the World Economic Forum’s Partnership Against Corruption Initiative can be a reference or inspiration to speed up corruption prevention efforts, reduce the time needed to boost integrity and good governance and at the same time, make a drastic impact,” he said in his speech officiating the Integrity, Governance and Anti-Corruption Awards (AIGA) 2023 here today, which was read by Finance Minister II Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan.

Fadillah underscored the government’s dedication to enhancing national integrity and combating corruption, as evidenced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s directive to establish governance committees at various levels. He also highlighted the establishment of a Special National Governance Cabinet Committee aimed at addressing governance weaknesses.

Furthermore, Fadillah stressed the importance of fostering a culture of integrity, emphasizing that it requires collective and sustained efforts. He praised the AIGA, organised by the Integrity Institute of Malaysia (IIM), as a means of recognising organisations committed to promoting integrity within their ranks.
