Nearly US$1.6 million for anti-corruption
VietNamNet Bridge – The Prime Minister has approved a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)-funded project to enhance anti-corruption efforts in Vietnam.
The project will be implemented over the next four years at an estimated cost of nearly US$1.6 million, of which roughly US$1.5 million will be sourced from official development assistance (ODA), with the balance coming from the State budget.
It aims to strengthen the Vietnam Government’s anti-corruption capacity through fully observing the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and raising the role of the non-state sector in anti-corruption activities.
The project will also help revise legislation, build a database to assist in monitoring and evaluating anti-corruption work, and improve supervision of the operational efficiency of social organisations on matters related to the issue.
