Government entrusts UNDP along with other development partners to create funding facility to boost administration reform
Ha Noi - The Government of Viet Nam has entrusted United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) along with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Sweden, Denmark and other interested development partners to create a Funding Facility to boost administration reform over the next 10 years in Viet Nam.
The request was made by the Government during a workshop on the Implementation of the Master Programme of Public Administration Reform (PAR) for 2001-2010. The meeting, held from 27-28 September in Ha Long city, brought together Government high-level officials and a group of donors including UNDP, ADB, Denmark and Sweden.
The workshop is part of the Government initiative to develop an action plan to implement the PAR Master Programme, the first ever comprehensive PAR National Strategy, approved by the Prime Minister Phan Van Khai on 17 of September.
"PAR is not a quick process" said UNDP's Resident Representative, Edouard Wattez. "But a lot has been and can be achieved by perseverance, clear strategic planning, good co-ordination and partnership building". Mr. Wattez said UNDP is ready to offer assistance to the Government in managing, co-ordinating, monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the Master programme and to widely disseminate the proposed reforms.
Mr. Wattez also urged the Government to build on the lessons learned from ongoing PAR projects, by immediately implementing a few key reform measures, such as the replication of the "one-stop shop", wide dissemination of the Grassroots Democracy decree 29, and wider implementation of the Enterprise Law, to name a few.
PAR has been brought at the top of the Government agenda, particularly after the 9th Party Congress. UNDP has been working together with the Government since 1993 in undertaking public administration reform. The first project of the Government with support from UNDP - Public Administration Reform, VIE/92/002 - became the framework for facilitating technical assistance in this area from other development partners. So far a number of PAR projects have been undertaken by many other donors, some with significant achievements, at different levels of the government.The Master Programme of PAR has set its overall objective for developing a "clean, stable, efficient and effective administrative system" within the period from 2001- 2010.

- "After my husband died 10 months ago we fell on hard times. But our situation got worse with the drought and saline intrusion from El Niño. All our rice and vegetables died. We had taken out several loans for our farm and we lost everything”, said Nguyen Thi Nuong, from rural VietNam. Elderly and in poor health, she is still recovering from the collapse of her house during Typhoon Durian in 2006. Before the drought, her family owned nearly half a football field of land for cultivation. However, to cover the cost of more than 100 million VND (US$4490) of bank loans she was forced to sell more than two thirds of the land, and now rents it back for 30 million VND (US$1,350) a year. 14 hours ago
