In 2013, the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau held its inaugural Anti-Corruption Executive (ACE) Programme from 3 to 14 June. The programme was open to selected overseas and local participants for the purpose of bringing together academics and enforcement officers to share and discuss about the diverse challenges faced by anti-corruption agencies in a rapidly-changing socio-economic, political and legal environment.
Every visitor who walked through the gate of the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) usually has a purpose. On 9 December 2012, that purpose was to find out more about the Bureau, its roles and functions and to mingle with its officers. On that day, the gate was opened and the gantry was raised, welcoming visitors from all walks of life.
On 18 September 2012, the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, the world’s oldest anti-corruption agency celebrated its 60th anniversary. Held at the Istana, this significant event was graced by Guests-of-Honour, Prime Minister, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, founding Prime Minister, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew and Emeritus Senior Minister, Mr Goh Chok Tong. Three former Directors of the CPIB and retired officers also joined the serving officers in commemorating this occasion.
