KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): US Chargé d’Affaires Ross Wilson on Sunday asked the Afghan government, private industry, media, NGOs and civil society to identify and combat corruption and create a future of opportunity and prosperity.

In a tweet Wilson said: “#Corruption continues to be the barrier to realizing #Afghanistan's true potential. We call on the #Afghan government, private industry, media, NGOs, and civil society to identify and combat corruption, and create a future of opportunity and prosperity.”

This comes as the US Fiscal Transparency Report 2020 placed Afghanistaninfo-icon among 76 countries that met minimum requirement for the fiscal transparency.

Wilson tweeted: “2020 Fiscal Transparency Report explains which countries meet the minimum requirements. #Afghanistan can and must do more. #AntiCorruption.”

The Joint Explanatory Statement accompanying the FY 2020 SFOAA defines “minimum requirements of fiscal transparency” to mean the public disclosure of:

National budget documentation (to include income and expenditures by ministry) and

Government contracts and licenses for natural resource extraction (to include bidding and concession allocation practices).

The 2020 fiscal transparency review process evaluated whether the government publicly disclosed key budget documents, including expenditures broken down by ministry and revenues broken down by source and type.

The review process also evaluated whether the government has an independent supreme audit institution or similar institution that audits the government’s annual financial statements, and whether such audits are made publicly available.
