During a work session to identify challenges in respect to integrity for the anticorruption authorities in the region, UNODC participated in a debate where representatives of Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Transparency International presented the various work areas and topic in which they found most difficulties in the implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.

One of the challenges identified, were the difficulties regulating conflict of interest in the islands, the absence of regulatory frameworks for the protection of whistleblowers, the need for more interinstitutional cooperation among the different institutions responsible for the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of corruption and related offences as money laundering as well as lack of resources and other problems concerning international cooperation.
