Hanoi (VNA) – Japan’s experience in promoting ethics in the public sector was shared at a workshop in Hanoi on March 6.

The event was held by the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Organisation Commission, the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, and the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam.

Vice Chairman of the Organisation Commission Mai Van Chinh said the CPV and the Government of Vietnam are very interested in public sector ethics so as to improve the effectiveness of administrative reform.

The workshop introduced the philosophy on the management of an organisation according to Kazuo Inamori, founder of the Inamori Foundation, Chairman Emeritus of Kyocera Corp. and KDDI Corp., and honorary adviser of Japan Airlines. 

It highlighted living and working according to moral standards and based on the love for people for common interests, which is meant to improve organisations’ operation effectiveness, organisation members’ awareness; promote people’s ethics, dignity, wisdom and capacity; and build a healthy work environment.

The philosophy is hoped to help improve transparency in administrative procedures and prevent corruption and cronyism in the administrative apparatus and State-owned enterprises.

The event introduced participants to the characteristics and philosophies that a leader needs to have, along with other relevant issues.

In 2010, Kazuo Inamori agreed to become chairman of Japan Airlines without pay, and within three years, he pulled the airline out of bankruptcy.

He advocates a business philosophy based on doing the right thing as a human being, which he believes will help the business develop and each employee be happy.-VNA
