Cambodia, Vietnam Share Experience in Inspection

Cambodia's Ministry of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection and Vietnam's Government Inspectorate have recently held a working meeting to further boost their cooperation.

The Cambodian side was headed by H.E. Mrs. Men Sam An, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Assembly-Senate Relations, while the Vietnamese side was led by Inspector General Le Minh Khai of the Government Inspectorate.

According to Vietnam News Agency (VNA), at the talks taking place in Hanoi on Oct. 15, the two sides briefed each other on the outstanding results of inspection work, the settlement of complaints and denunciations, and the prevention and fight against corruption in their respective countries in first nine months of this year.

They also shared the working directions and tasks in the remaining months of the year.

The Cambodian Ministry of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection and Vietnam's Government Inspectorate set up cooperative ties in 2003, and since then have regularly exchanged delegations and shared working experience.

The two sides signed cooperation agreements in inspection work and the settlement of complaints and denunciations in 2005, 2012 and 2016, with a focus on inspectors' training. From 2006 to 2018, the Vietnamese side held 9 basic training courses for 231 Cambodian inspectors and 5 advanced training courses for 28 Cambodian officials.

Deputy Prime Minister H.E. Mrs. Men Sam An said the talks produced useful outcomes, helping enhance the effectiveness of bilateral cooperation programmes.

She said the partnership between the inspection agencies has contributed to the friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
