Le Anh Tuan, deputy director of the MoHA’s Institute for State Organisational Sciences, said at a press conference on Wednesday in Hanoi that the MoHA would soon hold a meeting on the implementation of the code of conduct.

According to Tuan, there have been regulations relating to the code of conduct for civil servants. For example, the Law on Cadres and Civil Servants mentioned some rules that civil servants were expected to follow but the code of conduct written by the ministry consists of a set of rules that outline social standards, responsibilities and proper practices for all civil servants and public employees.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has assigned ministries, agencies and localities to strictly supervise the implementation of the code of conduct, he said.

Under the code of conduct for civil servants, which has been approved by the Prime Minister, civil servants should be devoted to their duties and be willing to exercise a function assigned by the their employers.

It was necessary for them to be courteous and professional when in contact with the public.

Civil servants should follow the direction of their leaders and be ready to coordinate with their colleagues in performing duties.

They are supposed to dress neatly while exercising civil service. Their clothes need to be suitable for their work and the country’s customs and traditions.

In response to a question from the media concerning the quick appointment of 31-year-old Vuong Mai Trinh to the office of An Giang Province’s Long Xuyen City’s Party Committee as deputy head, Nguyen Tu Long, Deputy Head of MoHA’s Department of Civil Servants said as she held a master’s degree, Trinh was appointed to the post without any tests.

However, it was later found that she studied in Vietnam. Thus, she did have to take civil servant recruitment tests.

In accordance with MoHA’s regulations, only those with master’s certificate granted by educational institutions in foreign countries are exempt from the tests.

Long said that authorities in An Giang Province were reviewing all positions granted without taking a test in the province.

Violations would be dealt with in line with the law, he said.
