Mariam Salukvadze: "As part of the Anti-Corruption Certification Program, I learned about the challenges of fighting against corruption, effective management of anti-corruption policy strategy and the issues regarding prevention of corruption. It is impossible for me to imagine development of a state where corruption is flourishing and there is no trust towards public servant. Therefore, it is important to participate in such professional programs which aim to form the anti-corruption worldview. This program is the best project to gain education in anti-corruption sphere, because besides the regular trainings and seminars, it promotes the effective collaboration with foreign countries, sharing knowledge, practices and experiences to facilitate anti-corruption activities. I recommend those who are interested to take part in the program."
