Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has urged the State Audit Office of Vietnam (SAV) to work harder to figure out the root causes behinds wrongdoings in the use of State resources to trigger loss and misspending of public assets, thus devising prompt and efficient preventive solutions.

For the wrongdoings found by the SAV, ministries and sectors should soon stringently deal with violated individuals and organizations, the PM said during a working session with the SAV staff on January 23.

He highlighted the close coordination between the SAV and the Government in amending and abolishing backward institutions, policies and laws as well as in preventing, handling and recovering lost State budget and assets.

He asked for closer collaboration between the SAV and the Government Inspectorate in the auditing work, towards avoiding overlapping in inspection and audit activities.

PM Phuc also underlined the need to timely build plans for auditing big projects, thus preventing them from facing losses or committing wrongdoings.

He expressed his belief that along with the building and perfecting the rule of law in Vietnam, the SAV will operate more effectively.

According to reports from the SAV, the agency carried out 257 audits in many ministries, sectors, localities and enterprises, from which it detected mistakes in budget collection and expenditures, as well as in recruitment of civil servants.-VNA
