Anti-corruption officials in the southern region met and exchanged ideas and information at a conference in the southern province of Vinh Long on February 20.

The event was held by the Government Inspectorate to introduce the 2014 Vietnam Anti-Corruption Initiative (VACI) programme themed “More Transparency, Integrity and Accountability”. 

Speaking at the event, Deputy Director General of the Department for Anti-Corruption of the Government Inspectorate Ngo Manh Hung said the VACI has had positive impacts on the effectiveness of the corruption fight. 

Delegates also shared experience on the implementation of projects relating to the programme’s theme in the education sector in Vinh Long and the neighbouring province of Ben Tre . 

The 2014 VACI, jointly co-organised by the World Bank (WB) and the Government Inspectorate, encompasses an innovation contest and a knowledge exchange forum. The best initiatives will be announced in May. 

This year’s programme is the fourth event of the VACI series. The 24 best initiatives out of the 130 proposals received last year were selected and successfully implemented in the 2013 programme.
