Hanoi (VNA) – Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vu Minh Khuong, a lecturer of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, spoke of the building of eminent public authorities in Singapore while giving a presentation in Hanoi on August 6, which was broadcast at 73 television sites nationwide.

Khuong described the building of eminent public authorities as an urgent and strategic issue to make a country strong and prosperous.

Singapore has attracted the best citizens to the Government and seriously looked into issues that need to be addressed, he said, adding that during the process, the country has mobilised external resources and learned from anyone who has knowledge in this field.

According to the lecturer, Singapore has clear long-term goals and set targets for each period of time. Leaders play the key role while the Government takes the lead in grasping changes. All citizens take responsibility for national development.

Khuong noted that a sound strategy, an eminent Government and public trust and support are decisive factors to national development.

During his presentation, Khuong also talked about the building of eminent public authorities in Vietnam.

The event was organised by the Organisation Commission of the Party Central Committee and the steering board of Project 165 on overseas training for leaders and managers using State budget.

Mai Van Chinh, deputy head of the Organisation Commission and the steering board, said the talk aims to introduce Singapore’s experience in administrative reform and public authority organisation to serve the building of a streamline and effective political system.-VNA
