Vietnam: Civil Society Organisations engage with citizens to call for government openess, transparency and accountability

Người dân thảo luận

Vietnam is a one-party state and central planning system in which budget issues are often dealt with as state issues. Vietnam’s ranking on OBI, currently 19, has only improved slightly over time and did not achieve the average international ranking until 2012. Public participation in the budget process is limited by institutional and procedural settings. Where there is limited citizen access to public information people cannot hold government accountable for managing public resources.
