Djibouti is leading an active campaign to combat corruption in the country and strengthen governance.
The fight against corruption in Djibout
The government has long been committed to improving governance and transparency with regards to the management of public funds – the heart of any effective fight against corruption.
Institutional and administrative practices in the country have evolved dramatically over the past decade, as demonstrated by the implementation of legislative and regulatory reforms and the creation of new institutions charged with strengthening governance and transparency in the management of public administration.
The following measures have been implemented:
- An ombudsman to strengthen the tools used to reinforce the protection of those who can benefit from public services
- A Court of Accounts and Fiscal Discipline which has since become a court of accounts to ensure judicial review of public accounts
- A State Inspectorate General to ensure the administrative control of public organisations
- A financial intelligence unit, set up within the Central Bank’s Fraud Investigation Unit, to monitor Djibouti’s growing banking sector
