Division of power in Vietnam will prolong

Workshop

The division of power is crucial for Vietnam to improve the efficiency of state governance, said experts at the workshop on division of power between central and local governments held on July 17 in Hanoi. Power division must be constitutionalized rather than regulated by any governmental level. However, the experts warned, when the power is transferred to local governmental bodies there must be constant inspection. The supervision of the central state over local governments must be dropped. Organised by the Institute of State and Law and KAS Vietnam, the workshop convened more than 50 participants who are researchers and officials of the Ministry of Home Affairs, the National Assembly’s Economic Commission, University of Law.
