HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Trương Hòa Bình has requested the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) to press ahead with reducing the size of its workforce and eradicating family member employment and appointments to promote staff performance.
He made the requirement at a meeting on Monday reviewing the ministry’s activities this year and setting tasks for 2017.
He pointed out the sector’s shortcomings, including sluggish administrative reforms and workforce streamlining. While the administrative apparatus is still cumbersome, the sector has failed to precisely assess the performance of its cadres, civil servants and public employees.
Many cadres, civil servants and public employees still lacked a sense of responsibility and haven’t fulfilled their tasks, he said.
Bình asked the MoHA to continue overhauling regulations on the recruitment and use of civil servants and public employees, adding that inspection must be increased to eliminate the appointment of ineligible persons even when that appointment is in line with procedures.
The sector must strongly reform the management of its staff and implement the Politburo’s resolution on reducing State workers to promote the quality of cadres, civil servants and public employees.
Anyone who performs poorly or does not fulfil their missions must be replaced, the Deputy PM stressed.
In his report, MoHA Deputy Minister Trần Anh Tuấn said the sector had continued close management and control of its workforce and reduced staff members in accordance with the Politburo’s Resolution No 39.
Good performers in this regard include the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, and the provinces of Quảng Ngãi, Lạng Sơn, Cao Bằng, Sơn La, Thanh Hóa, Quảng Nam, Nghệ An, Cà Mau and Hà Giang, and Hải Phòng City. — VNS
