Corruption harms Vietnam’s apparatus: Party Chief

The Party Chief has made the fight against corruption the top issue in his agendas over the past terms, reiterating it is the most important thing to regain the public trust.

General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong said today that corruption at some points might damage the apparatus and endanger the regime if no determination is taken to eradicate it.

It’s a long-term journey that requires the system to do it patiently, persistently, and with the right method, Trong said at a meeting with the constituents in Hanoi on November 19.

Fighting graft is one of the typical issues at the hybrid meeting held with the constituents in the districts of Ba Dinh, Dong Da, and Hai Ba Trung, Hanoi – the places that Trong represents at the National Assembly.

Given the important role of anti-corruption, there are the operations of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption and the subnational committee in all 63 cities and provinces. 

Trong and other National Assembly representatives briefed voters about the outcomes of the recently concluded session of the Vietnamese parliament and provided responses to the suggestions of the people.

Voters also recommended that the National Assembly and the Government quickly come up with plans for the recovery of embezzled assets as well as the end of the duplication of inspection activities.

Voters requested quick resolutions for collecting tolls on roads not built under the Build-Operate-Transfer scheme.

The government should maintain control over the banking and securities sectors and stabilize the situation while stepping up inspection to reduce dangers to citizens and businesses, according to the voters.

On this occasion, Trong also briefed voters on the trip to China and said it was a “great” success. The outcomes of the visit have garnered special attention from both the domestic populace and the global public due to their importance. It has a significant impact on the future relations between Vietnam and China’s traditional neighbors and the comprehensive strategic partnership.

Attending the meeting were Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee Dinh Tien Dung, Chairman of the municipal People’s Council Nguyen Ngoc Tuan, Chairwoman of the municipal Fatherland Front Nguyen Lan Huong, and Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Ha Minh Hai.
