VTV.vn - Starting in 2009, the World Bank-sponsored Vietnam Anti-corruption Initiatives Programme or VACI, has been participated by organisations and individuals nationwide.

Projects, including several which are the result of ideas from the public have helped enhance transparency and accountability in the civil service.

In 2012, the P55 project, which aims at encouraging community involvements in planning public infrastructure construction, was carried out by the Consultative Institute for Socio-economic Development of Rural and Mountainous Areas. With each project’s plan and budget publicised, local people are free to contribute their opinions and project effectiveness has been improved.

The P55 project is among 10 projects chosen by the Government Inspectorate to implement in the country’s mountainous northern provinces. These projects have been appreciated by the World Bank thanks to their practicality.

However, anti-corruption campaigning remains quite a challenging task, involving many factors. Therefore co-ordination with local authorities is necessary in order to carry out the projects successfully.

So far, Vietnam has organised 5 national anti-corruption programmes with 102 projects being granted sponsors, 97 of which have apparently proved successful.
