Specifically, the city will promote dissemination of anti-corruption; implement resolutions and directives on anti-corruption to raise awareness and uphold the roles and responsibilities of staff, public servants, people, and enterprises in this  effort.

Especially, educational establishments bear the responsibility for putting anti-corruption contents into teaching in education establishment in accordance with Directive No. 10/CT-TTg, dated June 12, 2013.  

A series of effective measures on anti-corruption will be implemented at public offices especially in the areas of land, natural resources, environment, and staff recruitment.  

Earlier, in the 2018 Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI 2018) report, which surveyed around 14,300 people across 63 provinces and cities in Viet Nam, Ha Noi and HCMC were ranked 55th and 59th, respectively, in terms of controlling corruption in the public sector.

The ranking is based on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best. It is further broken down into four smaller categories: limits on public sector corruption, limits on corruption on service delivery, equity in employment and willingness to fight corruption, each ranked on a scale from 0.25 to 2.5.

Corruption was also listed among the top three public concerns in Viet Nam, besides poverty and economic growth, with men about 7% more likely than women to name corruption as the country’s most pressing issue./.
