Social Responsibility

Contributing positively towards the welfare of society


The Ministry of Finance (MoF) has developed its own guide for social responsibility and is keen to disseminate a positive culture among all ministry employees at all departmental levels. MoF’s mission is to continue its contributions to achieving sustainable economic and social development, and fulfilling its duties towards the community.

In the ministry’s various practices and activities, a commitment is made to the guidelines and principles of the ISO 26000 standard of social responsibility. The core pillars of this international standard relate to transparency, accountability, ethical conduct, abiding by laws, respecting human rights, respecting customer rights, and respecting international laws and norms, as long as they do not conflict with the culture and traditions of society.
