Including the eradication of corruption on a large scale involving a high profile, or corruption that occurs daily. The preventive efforts and breakthroughs in this essential study of the issue of public services and eradicating corruption. Hopefully, through the theme of Public Service and Corruption Eradication, this can be further elaborated. “
