Inspectors should be more active: Deputy PM

Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has urged the Government Inspectorate to be more determined to prevent moral and political degradation among cadres.

Addressing a January 12 conference of the Government Inspectorate in Da Lat City, Lam Dong province, the Deputy PM highlighted the inspectorate’s achievements in 2011.

However, he said, there remain problems related to anti-corruption, complaints and denunciations, and property withdrawals.

Mr Phuc asked the Government Inspectorate to fulfill its mission with a higher sense of responsibility, build its operational regulations, and promote training of human resources to improve skills and professional ethics.

The conference discussed its mission for 2012, with a focus on inspection of ministries agencies, centrally-run cities and provinces, as well as the implementation of state management and socio-economic management in provincial and district departments.

In 2011, the sector conducted 75,600 inspections in state management and socio-economic management, through which violations of VND8,500 billion and 268,000 ha of land were detected. Inspection agencies proposed reclaiming VND5,000 billion and 12,000 ha of land, and imposed administrative fines of more than VND8,000 billion.

The sector also petitioned to take disciplinary measures against more than 3,500 violators and transfer the dossiers of 83 cases to investigative agencies.
