Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Tran Anh Tuan has re-affirmed the Government’s resolve to improve the quality of the contingent of public workers.

In a recent interview granted to the Vietnam News Agency, the deputy minister said all ministries, sectors and localities have taken measures to enforce the laws on public and civil workers. One of the measures is to build a set of standardized qualifications required of public and civil servants at both central and grassroots levels. A number of public agencies and local administrations have conducted examinations to recruit public servants to ensure fairness and transparency.

Deputy minister Tuan, however, admitted that the quality of the contingent of public servants still leaves much to be desired, particularly in terms of the sense of responsibility and working style and capacity.

He said that is the reason why the Prime Minister has issued an instructive on fighting negative phenomena in the management of public workers.

He stressed that those workers who have low sense of responsibility and fail to fulfil their duties must be sacked while leaders of public agencies should set good examples for their subordinates in order to enhance the quality of public services, meeting the demand of the public.

The deputy minister also called on the public as well as the mass media to monitor the work of public servants, contributing to building a healthy and transparent system of public administration.-VNA
