HA NOI (VNS)— The National Personnel Authority of Japan (NPA) will help Viet Nam retrain civil servants who are candidates for leading posts.
The comprehensive assistance, including designing training programmes and providing lecturers for the training, was made at the request of the Vietnamese side following their studies on Japan's civil service system.
According to Japanese newspaper Nihon Keizai, this is the first ever assistance Japan has offered to a country though it once sent experts to developing countries as well as received their trainees.
In detail, the NPA will co-operate with the Ho Chi Minh Academy of Politics and Public Administration to organise four-month training courses for about 500 public servants.
Experts from Japanese ministries and branches, including those from NPA, will participate in giving lessons during the courses, with the first expected to start this month and the second in autumn. — VNS
