Hanoi (VNA) - The Party Central Committee's Commission for Internal Affairs reviewed its anti-corruption efforts in 2015 and discussed the implementation of objectives for 2016 during a meeting held on January 8.

Deputy Head of the Central Committee on Corruption Prevention and Fighting Le Hong Anh lauded the committee's contribution in the country's campaign against corruption.

He said 2016 will be a special year as numerous important events in the country will take place, including the country's National Assembly XIV and the People's Council election as well as the first year of implementation of the XII Party National Congress's resolution.

Therefore, Anh urged the committee to strive to fulfill its duties and continue to provide the Party with consultancy to improve legal mechanisms, policies and socio-economic management capacity to better prevent and fight corruption.

The committee was asked to provide local authorities and grassroots cadres with both solutions and guidance in the fight against corruption in accordance with the country's laws and regulations.

It needs to keep improving its quality of consultancy, the making of anti-corruption policy and its ability to recover assets in corruption cases.

The role of the committee was highlighted in some of the country's major corruption cases, which were put on trial recently showing Vietnam's resolution to put an end to rampant corruption.

Anh also urged the committee to reflect and address its own numerous shortcomings to better fulfill its duties to maintain public order and social security as well as to step up efforts in co-operation with the country's other anti-corruption agencies.-VNA
