Hanoi (VNA) – The 11th Party Central Committee’s report on documents submitted to the 12th National Party Congress defines the fight against corruption and wastefulness as a regular, important but hard task that requires time.

Talking with the Vietnam News Agency on the sidelines of the ongoing 12th National Party Congress, many delegates stressed the importance of anti-corruption efforts, saying that combatting corruption requires the participation of the entire society to bring about greater change.

Delegate Le Hoang Phung from Lam Dong province suggested putting anti-corruption work high on the agenda which, he said, is the aspiration of the whole Party and people, and one of the tasks of all-level Party organisations.

Delegate Nguyen Van Cong from Dong Thap province underlined the need to control the income of officials, especially those in charge of sensitive economic sectors.

Echoing the delegates’ views, delegate Nguyen Viet Dung from Ho Chi Minh City, said publicity and transparency are the most important tools in the combat against corruption.

He also called for the involvement of the entire society in building and effectuating relevant guidelines and policies for the Party and the State.

Delegate Vu Trong Kim, Vice President and General Secretary of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee, urged consistent efforts in fighting corruption, adding that the work would yield better results if it were being supervised by the public.

Major General Truong Gia Long, from the Party Organisation of the Ministry of Public Security, said it is necessary to accelerate the building of a pure and strong Party.

Apart from raising awareness and responsibility of each Party official for the issue, the Party should work to win the confidence of the population and join hands in the national reform cause, he suggested.-VNA
