Conference highlights administration reform in anti-corruption drive

Hanoi – APEC member economies have regarded administration reform as one of crucial solutions to prevent and combat the menace of corruption.

The APEC member economies’ viewpoint was unanimously shared by representatives of international organisations at the on-going International Conference on Anti-Corruption and Administration Reform, which opened in Hanoi on June 25.

Deputy Chief of the Government Inspectorate of Vietnam Mai Quoc Binh said the administration reform will pave the way for transparency and openness to facilitate the fight against corruption.

Meanwhile, Vice Director of the Inspection Science Institute of Vietnam Dinh Van Minh affirmed the country considers the development of a modern, professional, transparent and open administration apparatus supported by a dedicated and honest staff as a safeguard to ensure the success of the anti- corruption drive.

For his part, Hong Hyun-sun, Standing Commissioner of the Republic of Korea’s Anti-Corruption & Civil Rights Commission said, “Administration reforms and anti-corruption are likened to twin engines of national development in that a single engine cannot produce desired thrust.”

Sharing the view, Head Investigation of Singapore’s Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau Tin Yeow Cheng said his country has been striving for the efficiency of the State public administration with the focus on the implementation of an initiative “Public Service for the 21 st ”, regarding it as one of the four pillars in the fight against corruption.

Meanwhile, a UNDP advisor stressed that the fight against corruption is linked to the wider governance and public administration so that the elimination of corruption cannot be achieved in isolation from public administration reform and an expanded role of civil social organisations (in addition to media and the private sector) and the justice system.

Jairo Acuna-Alfaro, Advisor on Anti-Corruption and Public Administration Reform from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) also said “the ultimate objective of public administration is to provide and deliver better quality public services to the citizens, especially to the poor.”

The ongoing International Conference on Anti-Corruption and Administration Reform brought together 80 delegates representing 21 APEC member economies, regional and international anti-corruption organisations, Vietnamese ministries and industries.
