“The expenses to directly register and return the administrative records at offices amounted to more than VNĐ1.8 trillion ($80 million). However, people only had to pay some VNĐ230 billion (nearly $10 million) when they used postal services,” Viet Nam Post’s vice-general director, Chu Thi Lan Huong, said at a conference this week.
She said that registering and returning administrative records through postal services not only created advantages for citizens and curbed corruption but also contributed to the development of public services.
“A minimum of 600,000 administrative documents are exchanged each day. If they are registered and returned directly to offices, it requires individuals and organizations to spend a lot of effort, time and money,” Ngo Hai Phan, director of the department of administrative control under the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), told online newspaper infonet.vn.
MoJ worked with the Ministry of Communication and Information and Việt Nam Post to build the draft on registering and returning administrative records through postal services.
The draft was posted on the government’s website to receive responses and feedback from ministries, organizations, agencies and localities and will soon be enacted.
