He noted that the ACTA is in charge of preparing the code of conduct, in the framework of completing the system required for state institutions to carry out their duties efficiently and capably, in order to increase transparency and integrity in the state and enhance trust in public office as well as to provide more protection to public money.
Al-Misned added that the provisions of the code of conduct will be applicable to all civil employees at ministries and other governmental bodies.
He said the code of conducts comes in the framework of the commitment to the UN Convention Against Corruption.
