The event is part of the UNDP-funded project on enhancing legislative studies and information communication technology capacity for ILS.
Participants focused on topics like corruption prevention and fight in Vietnam, UN Convention against Corruption, international experiences, recommendations for Vietnam among others.
To raise the National Assembly’s role in combating corruption, many delegates said the Legislature needs to improve the quality of the issuance of legal documents to prevent corruption opportunities.
Its Decisions on finance, economics and budget must also be practical.
According to the Transparency International’s 2011 Corruption Perceptions Index, Vietnam ranked 112 out of 182 countries and territories. Thus, comprehensive measures are needed.
Corruption has been rampant in fields like land, finance-banking, capital construction, State property management and use.
In response, the Vietnamese Party and State have paid due attention to fighting corruption but the outcomes remain moderate.
Corruption is mainly attributed to the shortcomings of socio-economic management policies, inspection and supervision.
