Cayman Islands representatives joined country leaders from across the Caribbean at a Commonwealth integrity and anti-corruption conference that opened Monday afternoon in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.
This fourth annual conference of the Commonwealth Caribbean Association of Integrity Commissions and Anti-Corruption Bodies has as its theme “Counting the Real Cost of Corruption – Engaging Everyone in the Fight.”
Rosie Whittaker-Myles, chair of the Standards in Public Life Commission, and commission member Pastor Shion O’Connor are representing the Cayman Islands at the week-long conference.
The association’s conferences are designed to help Caribbean countries “to cooperate across borders, exchange best practices and develop regional anti-corruption initiatives,” according to the Commonwealth Secretariat at the launch of the association in June 2015.
Some 10 Caribbean Commonwealth countries and Panama are represented.
