The Members were briefed about the ROXIN Alliance membership to the World Bank – Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development and the manner in which the Roxin Alliance through its members will collectively contribute to the ‘Anti Corruption & Governance Working Group’ projects. Besides the World Bank, collaboration of the Alliance with other Public International Organisation was discussed and an action plan for the same was subsequently drawn up.
