Closing Session Burian Speech

Michal Burian, 10th IACC, Speech, Governance

 

Michal Burian:

Thank you very much. Mrs Chairwoman, Mr. President, Mr. Mayor of Seoul, distinguished guests, friends. I am here, as probably most of you expect, to say that the conference is at its very end, but I would like to say that this is not completely the case. I would like to invite you for this afternoon to a very special event that will take place on Wenceslas Square at the art exhibition tent after this plenary and finish at four o'clock. I hope I will meet you all there, and there, too, on Wenceslas Square in the centre of Prague, we can say good-bye.

I would like to thank all of you for coming to Prague, I would like to thank you for your tremendous work you have done before the conference and during the conference. I would like to thank all our partners for their kind support. Let me give my very special thanks to the members of the team that prepared this conference. This was real teamwork, and we would not have been able to organize this conference without the help of our colleagues in Prague, in Berlin, in London and other TI chapters. Thank you very much.

Indeed, the conference is at its very end, and I would like to wish much success to our colleagues in Seoul. They will have a very difficult job because they will be organizing not just one conference, but two of them. This will probably be the biggest challenge from the start of the IACC series, so let us keep our fingers crossed for our colleagues in Korea.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me invite on the stage Mr. Kevin Ford who is serving chairman of the International Anti-corruption Conference Council, and also Mr. Barry O´Keefe, member of the IACC Council, to make a short speech and assist me with the hand-over ceremony.
