Government approves new anti-corruption strategy
The Estonian Government has approved an anti-corruption strategy implementation plan for the next four years. Through 2020, the state will dedicate a total of 3.9 million euros for the combat of corruption.
The Estonian Government also wants to form an Anti-Corruption Council, whose broader objective would be to reduce corruption by raising awareness in target groups, reported ERR’s television news.
New e-learning materials for use in grade-school civics classes were introduced last year to help inform youth attitudes towards corruption. The Ministry of Finance has also introduced the new code of ethics to 600 public servants.
