Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung in 2007 made a decision and assigned the Government Inspectorate (GI) to regularly organise Anti-Corruption Dialogue (ACD) in Vietnam twice a year. ACD – an on-going process - has become a strategic entry where development partners (DPs) and concerned Vietnamese institutions can discuss frankly and openly the (anti-)corruption issues and how DPs effectively can cooperate with Vietnam to combat corruption. Sweden was invited by the Government of Vietnam (GoV) to play the role of DPs coordinator in mobilising resources and organising ACDs in 2007 and maintained this role until June 2011, when the United Kingdom took over.
To fight corruption in Vietnam is a priority to Sweden. We have therefore supported different Anti Corruption programs targeting the public sector, NGO's and also the private sector.
