Hanoi – The General Secretary, Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong on Wednesday, said combating corruption is a very important task while the fight remains difficult and complicated in Vietnam.
Trong made the remarks while chairing the 10th session of the CPV Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption held in Hanoi.
Trong, who is also head of the 16-member committee, said corruption is still a disturbing issue in Vietnam.
The party chief however, urged the committee to make drastic actions.
“Among six key tasks stipulated in the 12th CPV National Congress resolution, top two included combating ideological and ethical recession, corruption and bureaucracy,’’ Trong said.
He urged each member in the committee should be an example of ethics and keep pure moral quality as well as not allow corruption to happen with himself or at his respective agency.
In early 2013, the CPV Politburo decided to set up the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption, which is responsible for directing, coordinating, supervising and accelerating the work of anti-corruption nationwide. (Xinhua/NAN)
