Deputy Prime Minister Truong Vinh Trong, who is also the Deputy Director of the Central Steering Board for Anti-Corruption, has asked the staff at the Board's Office to be proactive in initiating measure to help combat corruption.

Addressing a meeting to review the office's activities during 2010 and discuss plans for 2011 in the capital city Jan. 24, Trong said achievements made by the office last year were an important element that helped the office enhance its image and fight against corruption nationwide.

"To uphold an anti-corruption spirit, you should closely follow suspected corruption cases, particularly serious and complex ones and then come up with effective proposals to handle them," said Trong.

He also asked the office to work closely with ministries, sectors and localities to make sure their 2011 anti-corruption plans would be well executed, including a communication campaign that aims to raise people's awareness.

The office is also expected in 2011 to expand its international relations concerning anti-corruption, implement the UN Act against Corruption, push the National Anti-Corruption Strategy and continue other activities that are in line with the Resolution adopted at the 11th National Party Congress.

In 2010, the Office advised the Central Steering Board for Anti-Corruption. It presented 27 complex, serious corruption cases to the Board. These cases were highlighted so that similar cases in the future will be given appropriate attention. Thirteen cases will be handled by the National Steering Board and the 14 others by the Office. /.
