Viet Nam has shown its strong determination to fight wastefulness and corruption, said Switzerland’s Minister Counsellor Lennart Nordstrom at the signing ceremony of agreements on grants totalling US$2.2 million in support of Viet Nam’s programme to strengthen its inspectorate system.
This can be seen in several moves that the Vietnamese Government has taken recently, he said, citing the most prominent ones include the endorsement of the Anti-Corruption Law, the establishment of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption, and notably the media’s ever-increasing, active involvement in the persistent battle against the evil.
The funding is designed to support the inception phase of the “Strengthening the Comprehensive Capacity of the Inspectorate System from 2006-2010” by the Vietnamese government, which commenced on Oct. 1 this year.
Addressing the signing ceremony, Inspector General of Viet Nam’s Government Inspectorate Tran Van Truyen spoke highly of the financial support, saying that it will contribute to the improvement of Vietnamese inspectorate personnel’s the professional capacity.
“This will enable the inspectorate system in Viet Nam to better handle the people’s complaints and denunciations, and especially to successfully fulfill the anti-corruption tasks,” Truyen added.
