DA NANG (VNS) — The central city of Da Nang held an examination for the post of the city's construction department's director yesterday, becoming the first city in Viet Nam to launch selections for the 2015-20 period.
Three officials of the department -- Tran Van Dung, 50, chief of the inspection department; Deputy Director Le Tung Lam, 42; and Deputy Director Vu Quang Hung, 46 -- took a three-hour test on practical projects to give a face-lift to the department and the city's urban planning.
"It's a benchmark for the city to select the best person for the driving seat of the most important department for the city's future development," the city's Party Secretary and Chairman of the city's People's Council Tran Tho said.
"The examination, which followed an appointment of the city's vice-director of the Institute of Society and Economic Development, shows a strong commitment towards promoting transparency, publicity and competitive examination as an example for the selection of hundreds of posts in different departments," Tho said at beginning of the examination.
He said the department has played a key role in the city's infrastructure and architectural development over the past decades.
He said the successful candidate must make changes in the department within six months, and would have to implement the project proposed in the examination within one to two years.
The city party secretary said the new director of the department would have to resign if he did not make any positive changes within a year.
The final result of the exam will be announced later.
As scheduled, the city will also host an examination for the posts of three vice-chairmen of Son Tra, Ngu Hanh Son, Thanh Khe and Hoa Vang districts in the third quarter this year. — VNS
