New report tackles land corruption issue head on

Commissioned by the Embassy of Denmark, Sweden and the World Bank, the report, “Recognising and reducing corruption risks in land management in Vietnam”, evaluated the leading causes of corruption in this country. According to Dao Trung Chinh, deputy director of the land department at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE), the Vietnamese government had been dealing actively with the above issues.

Transparency, key to corruption fight

The statement was made after the Danish and Swedish embassies and the World Bank published two reports concerning recognising and reducing corruption risks in the land management sector in Viet Nam. Director of the World Bank in Viet Nam Victoria Kwakwa said fighting against land-related corruption, which is considered to be a big challenge for Viet Nam, might take time and effort.

Awareness a key tool in fighting corruption

To implement the Party’s Xth Congress resolution, the Party Central Committee issued a resolution on “enhancing the Party’s leadership over the prevention and combat of corruption” at the third plenum in July, 2006, according to Trong. He noted that the Party Central Committee’s adoption of the first-ever resolution on fighting corruption again demonstrated the Party’s political will, as well as its role and responsibility in beating the scourge.

Transparency key to fighting corruption

Viet Nam has taken great strides in terms of legal framework, preventive measures, administrative reform, inspections and prosecutions among others, according to a report presented by OSCAC at the dialogue.

This is a common recommendation put forward by international delegates at the 8 th Dialogue on Anti-Corruption with the theme, “Anti-corruption in land administration and use” held in Hanoi on November 25.
