Vietnam, OECD boost anti-corruption experience sharing

Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh has welcomed the selection of Vietnam as the host of the 10th Regional Conference on Preventing and Combating Corruption in Infrastructure Projects in Asia Pacific by the OECD, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia Pacific.

At a a reception for Deputy Secretary General of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Jeffrey Schlagenhauf in Hanoi on Friday, Mr. Binh asked the OECD to continue coordinating with the Government Inspectorate of Vietnam to build a suitable support program, focusing on improving institution and policies, and enhancing law enforcement capacity.

Schlagenhauf highly valued Vietnam's strong commitment regarding the implementation of OECD's guidelines and recommendations, along with the country's achievements in the anti-corruption fight. He vowed support for Vietnam during its tenure of chairmanship of ASEAN. OECD is working with its other member governments to discuss measures to further strengthen the relationship between the organization and Vietnam, he noted.
