Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc addressing the dialogue.
Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc made this commitment during the 10th anti-corruption dialogue between the Government of Vietnam and international donors held in Hanoi on November 29 by the Government Inspectorate, the Office of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-corruption (OSCAC), the Embassy of the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom Department for International Development in Vietnam.
Deputy PM Phuc also emphasized that Vietnam always appreciates and listens to contributions, initiatives, suggestions and shared experience of international partners and friends to prevent and eradicate corruption.
Unlike the previous dialogues that discussed specific content, the 10th dialogue, on the theme of “assessing the influence and effectiveness of anti-corruption dialogues in Vietnam”, focused on reviewing the last five years since the Anti-corruption Law was initiated, giving an overall assessment on implementing the United Nations Convention against Corruption and the impacts of the initiatives and international experience in fighting corruption raised by Vietnam’s donors and international representatives.
After five years of implementing the Anti-Corruption Law, Vietnam has gained many achievements in establishing a legal framework for anti-corruption measures, including regulations on income and property transparency and rewards for whistleblowers.
During the dialogue, international delegates applauded Vietnam’s established anti-corruption policies and mechanisms. However, they still saw corruption as a big problem for Vietnam and urged the country to take real actions to implement the relevant legal documents effectively.
