Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly’s Council for Ethnic Affairs Ha Ngoc Chien held talks with Chairman of the Lao National Assembly’s Committee for Ethnic Affairs Buaphoune Likhaida in Hanoi on March 6 to discuss measures to boost stronger cooperation between the two sides.

Chien lauded the Lao delegation’s visit after the success of the Vietnam-Laos Friendship and Solidarity Year 2017 with many important activities, including celebrations of the 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties and the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Treaty on Amity and Cooperation.

Briefing the Lao officials on the achievements that the Vietnamese NA Ethnic Council has gained in implementing ethnic policies, Chien highlighted the experience and coordination mechanism between the council and the Vietnam Fatherland Front.

The council’s major tasks include verifying bills and draft ordinances related to ethnic affairs, proposing draft documents and projects on ethnic issues, and supervising the implementation of laws, ordinances and resolutions of the NA and the NA Standing Committee on ethnic matters and socio-economic development plans in areas inhabited by ethnic minority groups.

For his part, Buaphoune Likhaida, who is leading the Lao delegation to Vietnam from March 5-11, thanked the Vietnamese side for the warm welcome. He said that Laos has paid great attention to ethnic affairs, thus ethnic groups of the country have showed strong solidarity in national construction.

Having pointing out similarities between the Vietnamese NA’s Council for Ethnic Affairs and the Lao NA’s Committee for Ethnic Affairs, he expressed his hope to continue learning from the Vietnamese side’s experience on fostering coordination between the council and other organisations, including the Vietnam Fatherland Front and public organisations.

He also expected that the two agencies will work together to strengthen the cooperation and friendship between Laos and Vietnam.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has asked the National Financial Supervisory Committee to coordinate with competent ministries and agencies to give proposals to the Government and the PM on major economic issues, especially those regarding the macro economy and financial market supervision. 

Addressing a ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the committee in Hanoi on March 6, PM Phuc said the committee should focus on analysing the situation, particularly potential risks to the financial market, and activities of the banking, stock, insurance and real estate markets. 

He urged the committee to propose suitable policies and solutions, including risk identification tools and criteria assessing the safety of the financial system, given the fact that many countries in the world have effectively applied the early warning system of risks to the financial market. 

The committee was also asked to join hands with relevant ministries and agencies to complete the legal foundation for financial and banking groups, as well as mechanisms monitoring the groups. 

Apart from enhancing international cooperation, the committee needs to organise a number of conferences and seminars with the participation of both domestic and foreign experts to discuss important and urgent matters of the nation, the leader said. 

At the ceremony, PM Phuc presented the third-class Labour Order to the committee and certificates of merits to a number of leaders and officials of the committee. 

Truong Van Phuc, Chairman of the committee, said that over the past ten years, the committee has developed a synchronous database on the financial market, covering the banking, stock and insurance sectors, and a data system on the macro economy. 

The committee has also researched and applied international principles, standards and practices on risk identification, assessment and prevention, he said.

Japan’s experience in promoting ethics in the public sector was shared at a workshop in Hanoi on March 6.

The event was held by the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Organisation Commission, the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, and the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam.

Vice Chairman of the Organisation Commission Mai Van Chinh said the CPV and the Government of Vietnam are very interested in public sector ethics so as to improve the effectiveness of administrative reform.

The workshop introduced the philosophy on the management of an organisation according to Kazuo Inamori, founder of the Inamori Foundation, Chairman Emeritus of Kyocera Corp. and KDDI Corp., and honorary adviser of Japan Airlines. 

It highlighted living and working according to moral standards and based on the love for people for common interests, which is meant to improve organisations’ operation effectiveness, organisation members’ awareness; promote people’s ethics, dignity, wisdom and capacity; and build a healthy work environment.

The philosophy is hoped to help improve transparency in administrative procedures and prevent corruption and cronyism in the administrative apparatus and State-owned enterprises.

The event introduced participants to the characteristics and philosophies that a leader needs to have, along with other relevant issues.

In 2010, Kazuo Inamori agreed to become chairman of Japan Airlines without pay, and within three years, he pulled the airline out of bankruptcy.

He advocates a business philosophy based on doing the right thing as a human being, which he believes will help the business develop and each employee be happy.
