The event, jointly held by the School of Law of the National University-Hanoi and the Moroccan Embassy in Vietnam, is significant as it helps diversify cooperation between Vietnam and Morocco in the field, said Nguyen Thi Que Anh, Vice Dean of the School of Law.
Vietnam has renovated its administrative apparatus to ensure that it operates in a more democratic and effective way, she said, stressing that the change in the 2013 Constitution, of which Chapter “People’s Council and People’s Committee” was revised into “Local Government”, is the biggest change in the country’s administrative reform.
The National Assembly then passed the Law on Organisation of Local Administration in 2015 to concretise new articles in the 2013 Constitution, she highlighted, saying that exchanging experience in administrative decentralisation with foreign countries is necessary to realise the 2013 Constitution.
Meanwhile, Professor Hassan Ouazzani Chahdi said that decentralisation means managing local authorities and promoting them to make significant contributions to the nation’s sustainable development goals.
Local governments have crucial roles in implementing the international community’s activities like alleviating poverty, improving local people’s access to basic services such as fresh water, hygiene, education and healthcare, he added.-
