This year marks the fifth anniversary of establishing contacts between the two departments and signing the Memorandum of Understanding.
During the meeting, the parties summarised some of the results of cooperation and outlined areas for closer interaction, including at international anti-corruption platforms within the UN, OECD and APEC.
A constructive discussion was held on optimising the range of declarants, improving measures to prevent and resolve conflicts of interest, and increasing the effectiveness of control over officials’ expenses.
The parties also discussed innovations in the national legal regulation of anti-corruption efforts and the practice of implementing key international anti-corruption documents.
Mutual interest was noted in deepening contacts on most issues on the anti-corruption agenda, including in specialised training of experts.
The talks were supported by the Russian Foreign Ministry and held in a constructive and friendly atmosphere.
As part of the visit to Russia, the Vietnamese colleagues will also visit Krasnodar Territory to hold a number of meetings with the authorities of the region, and the city of Sochi, will gain insights into organising anti-corruption work on the ground and discuss prospects of establishing direct anti-corruption contacts at the regional level.
