HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has instructed all ministers to identify and dismiss under-performing public servants in order to improve the quality of public services.
The PM stated on Wednesday that all ministries and localities must maintain discipline in public services.
The state agencies should comply with regulations involving recruitment, training, assessment, appointment, promotion, and the salary policy of public servants, he asserted.
The PM also instructed ministries to issue regulations on commendations and reward those who detect and denounce any wrongdoings in the public services.
The PM noted that the Ministry of Home Affairs will issue a policy to dismiss under-performing public servants, including those who are not of sound character.
Public servants whose skills and background knowledge are not suitable for their current position and are not required for another position will also be dismissed.
The ministry will cut down on public employees whose performance fails to meet the professional standards required for their positions.
The Ministry of Home Affairs completed a draft decree to be implemented by 2020, to slash 100,000 employees of State-owned companies and State organisations in February.
The draft decree is expected to cost the government VND8 trillion (US$380.95 million).
The public has been invited to voice their opinion on the decree. — VNS
