The Vietnamese government has approved a United Nations Development Programme-funded project worth around US$1.6 million to enhance the country's ability to fight corruption.
The project will be implemented over a four year span. It aims to strengthen Vietnam’s capacity to fight corruption by fully observing the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and reinforcing the role of the non-state sector in anti-corruption activities.
It will also revise Vietnam’s legal framework on corruption, build a database to monitor and evaluate anti-corruption work, organize dialogues on anti-corruption between the government and international donors and support the Vietnam Anti-corruption Initiative -- a program initiated by the World Bank.
Nearly $1.5 million allocated for the project will be sourced from non-refundable aid, of which $1.03 million has been pledged for Vietnam. The government will contribute $84,000 for the project.
Vietnam's Government Inspectorate has been tasked with implementing the project.
