     The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC) of the Republic of Korea has been organizing the ACRC Training Course for International Anti-corruption Practitioners annually since 2013. The course aims to build the capacity of anti-corruption practitioners to formulate effective anti-corruption policies and measures, emphasizing topics related to the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). While the on-site training was held in Seoul, South Korea in the past, with the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the course was offered online. This year, the ACRC Training Course was attended by 44 participants from 22 countries. The training covers anti-bribery strategies, protection of whistleblowers, corruption risk assessment, conflict of interest avoidance, anti-corruption investigation, international cooperation and sharing of South Korea's anti-corruption experiences, etc. For the past three years, the Agency Against Corruption (AAC) of the Ministry of Justice has been actively deploying its staff to participate in this training course in order to expand its talent pool of international integrity experts and train international anti-corruption personnel.

     Taiwan is ranked the top spot in the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) among the participating countries. This is why in partial segments of the training course in relation to Article 6 (Preventive anti-corruption body or bodies) and Article 36 (Specialized authorities) of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), the role of AAC as a specialized agency dealing with government integrity, as well as Taiwan’s experiences and achievements in anti-corruption measures, received considerable of attention from the lecturer. During the course, trainees from the AAC introduced the organizational features of the AAC, such as preventive anti-corruption functions, specialized anti-corruption functions, and resident prosecutor system to the online participants, further deepening the impression of Taiwan's integrity achievements on the international stage. During the interactive Q&A session between the lecturers and participants, the AAC also learned from the valuable experience of other countries in actively engaging in international collaboration.
