ICAC Hosts First Tailored High-level Professional Training Course for Senior Bank Managers

The ICAC has organised the “Professional Anti-Corruption Training in Banking Management” (the Course) on 30 and 31 March 2023, which was attended by representatives of over 30 locally licensed banks, including the note-issuing banks in Hong Kong.  As the first pilot project of the International Anti-corruption Academy, Hong Kong, to be set up by the ICAC, the Course was the first-ever high-level professional anti-corruption training programme in Hong Kong featuring real corruption case analysis.  Divided into three main themes: detecting corruption, corruption prevention and building and fostering an ethical culture in a bank, the Course promoted the ICAC’s three-pronged approach of enforcement, prevention and education in anti-corruption work in the banking sector and aimed at enhancing the professional standard of the banking industry, and establishing an even more transparent, cleaner and effective financial system in Hong Kong. 

The Course was supported by regulatory and financial advisory bodies of the banking sector, all of which have been the ICAC’s valued partners in promoting a probity culture.  Guest speakers included Executive Director (Banking Conduct) of Hong Kong Monetary Authority Mr Alan Au Yuk Lun and Head of Policy Research of the Financial Services Development Council Dr Rocky Tung Yat Ngok.  The ICAC also invited Legislative Council member Mr Ronick Chan Chun Ying, representing the Finance Functional Constituency, to officiate at the closing ceremony.
