The Government Inspectorate
hosted a seminar in Hanoi on July 9 to discuss the role of state
agencies in detecting and dealing with corruption.

At the
event, participants underlined the urgency to tackle corruption, saying
that it is difficult work that needs to be strictly implemented over the
long-term, with the participation of the public and the whole national
political system.

They agreed that for effective preventing
and fighting corruption, a key measure is to enhance State agencies’
role in detecting and dealing with such negative phenomena.

Many delegates proposed enhancing the supervisory role of the National
Assembly and People’s Council at all levels over anti-corruption
efforts.

Delivering a speech at the event, Government
General Inspector Huynh Phong Tranh said the country has achieved
initial outcomes in its anti-corruption efforts, thanks to the close
collaboration of inspection and auditing agencies, procuracies and
courts.

Additionally, awareness work and regulations have
received due attention and become increasingly effective, with more
cases of corruption discovered and strictly dealt with, he added.

The inspector stressed that the moves help find
weaknesses in socio-economic management, therefore measures can be taken
to prevent corruption and bribery in State agencies.

However, the battle still has several shortcomings as acts of corruption still grow in sophistication.

Delegates said it is necessary to improve investigations,
inspections, audits, prosecutions and trials, as well as speed up the
settlement of corruption cases, especially serious and complex ones.-VNA
