A training course on public administration for Bangladeshi government officials opened in Hanoi on October 21.

The course is part of a cooperation agreement between the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) and the Bangladeshi Ministry of Public Administration, targeting officials at deputy ministerial, department director and deputy director levels.

During the 10-day course, they will learn about Vietnam’s political and public administration system, strategic management, policymaking, achievements and challenges of administrative reform, with the aim of building a professional, responsible, effective and transparent public service sector.

Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Tran Anh Tuan, who attended the opening ceremony, said the course also includes discussions and field trips.

Bangladeshi Minister of State for Public Administration Ismat Ara Sadique, for her part, said the Bangladeshi government is working hard to develop an interactive public service system in a bid to improve locals’ lives and grow into an average-income nation by 2021.

Since the beginning of August, the NAPA has launched five training courses for nearly 140 Bangladeshi deputy ministers, heads and deputy heads of government departments.-VNA
