In attendance were Politburo members: the PCC’s Secretary and Head of the PCC’s Organisation Committee Pham Minh Chinh; and Secretary of Ho Chi Minh City Party’s Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan.

The presentation aimed to discuss Japan’s experience in administrative reform, of both central and local governments, which served in researching and building a project on ‘continuing to renew the style of the Party’s leadership, and building a streamlined, active and effective organisational structure of the political system’.

At the event, experts introduced the system of policies, the structure and organisation of the central government’s apparatus, as well as the practical requirements, the process of administrative reform employed by the Japanese Government and the innovation of State-owned enterprises.

Regarding the governmental structure at local levels, Japanese professors introduced the system of local governments and their functions, the reform in decentralisation, comparative studies of management in localities and human resource development in local governments in Japan.

The participants also discussed the Japanese Government’s regulations on assessment of cadres and civil servants; experience in maintaining the public morality and efficiency of administrative reform for socio-economic development; solutions to streamline the apparatus; and the relationships between organisations at central and local levels.
