Hanoi (VNA) – Promoting anti-corruption and creating a healthy and transparent business environment will improve productivity as well as enhance competitive capacity, prestige and position of enterprises.

Deputy Secretary General of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) Nguyen Quang Vinh said at the conference themed “Fostering a better business environment through collective actions in business integrity in Vietnam” held in Hanoi on April 12.

The event, jointly held by the VCCI, the Centre for Social Governance Research (Censogor) and the Danish Embassy in Vietnam, drew the participation of economic experts, business associations as well as relevant authorities.
Boosting business transparency is of important significance and the issue has been discussed deeply at numerous regional and international business forums and conferences, Vinh stressed.

He said each company should exercise integrity in every business activity by using the toolkit for resisting corruption - a product in the initiative to bolster the incorruptible business environment.

The move also helps change the public awareness of anti-corruption, Vinh added.

Meanwhile, Censogor managing director Nguyen Thi Kieu Vien said that collective actions are hailed as an effective measure to prevent corruption in many countries, including Vietnam. 

The collective actions should focus on risk evaluation if there is bribery and corruption, implementing anti-corruption policy and supplying guidance on solutions for managers.

In addition to sharing internal anti-corruption policy, enterprises should join hands with their suppliers and partners to find out more effective collective actions to fight corruption.-VNA
