Dec. 1 – Vietnam’s Government Inspectorate, in collaboration with the World Bank, is scheduled to launch an anti-corruption program next month aimed at stamping out misconduct by those holding positions of public office and strengthening the public’s faith in the state.

The campaign, titled the Vietnam Anti-Corruption Initiative Program 2011, is expected to be conducted every two years from now until 2015, according to the Government Inspectorate.

“Strengthening public integrity will focus on improving transparency and morality in public work,” Deputy Inspector General Tran Duc Luong said on Tuesday at a workshop created to introduce the new program.

Tran said the scheme, which was first implemented in 2009, offered a good opportunity for the public to make suggestions and exchange fresh and innovative ideas on ways to fight corruption in the country.
