HA NOI (VNS) — A competition to suggest plans for implementing and developing anti-corruption initiatives in Viet Nam was launched in Ha Noi this morning.
The competition, jointly organised by the government inspectorate and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), aims to strengthen the participation of the authorities and organisations at the local level in the fight against corruption.
Participants will submit their plans to implement and develop 10 anti-corruption initiatives that won prizes on Viet Nam Innovation Day in 2009 and the three follow-up Viet Nam anti-corruption initiatives in 2011, 2013 and 2014.
These initiatives focused on the four topics of community supervision, anti-corruption youth education, measures to promote public awareness of anti-corruption initiatives and raising the bar for the public service sector.
The government inspectorate will award the 10 most outstanding plans a maximum of US$7,000 each for implementation next year.
Participants can submit their plans to the government inspectorate by November 20 this year. The results will be announced in December. — VNS
