Addressing the conference, Hue highlighted what the capital has achieved in anti-corruption operations and inspection and supervision work by Party committees and organisations at different levels, and how corruption cases have been prosecuted and brought to trial.

The city has taken drastic action to fight corruption so it does not affect the local business climate and socio-economic development, Hue said, noting that it has seen considerable economic growth and a 3.9-fold increase in FDI since 2016.

Reporting on results of anti-corruption operations in Hanoi between 2013 and 2020, head of the municipal Party Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs Nguyen Quang Duc said the city has issued two anti-corruption programmes and established a steering committee for anti-corruption, chaired by the municipal Party Secretary.

The capital has also strengthened inspection and supervision at local Party committees and organisations and paid more attention to settling complaints and denunciations, Duc said, adding that from over 2,480 inspections, the city has detected violations and proposed to reclaim a total of 2.45 trillion VND (105.5 million USD) and 1,055 ha of land from corruption cases.

A total of 838 people from 259 cases have been brought to court on corruption-related charges and some 9.66 trillion worth of assets have been recovered, he said./.
