Under a draft decree on the issue, the rotate system will be instituted for cadres in fields, including state budget, customs, taxation, treasury, national reserve, banking license, foreign exchange, banking inspection, credit appraisal, management and grant of various permits, and such police forces as economic police and traffic police.

In a similar move, the country is expected to regulate that state and party officials, including the state president and cabinet members, will have to open bank accounts so that their income can be monitored, according to a draft law on monitoring incomes of people having position and power worked out by Vietnam''s Interior Ministry and expected to be discussed by the country''s lawmakers late this year.

To prevent corruption at the root, Vietnam has to raise responsibility and enrich morality of civil servants, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said in his first online dialogue with local people in February.

Leaders must meet three criteria: having strong determination and clear awareness of corruption''s threats to the regime and people''s trust, not involving in corruption, and well understanding law and acting in accordance with the laws, the prime minister said.

Now, Vietnam is considering the establishment of provincial anti-corruption committees to direct and inspect anti-corruption activities in their localities, and help the Central Anti- Corruption Steering Committee formed last October direct, manage and have two-way information about the issues.

Besides intensifying such corruption prevention activities, the country is vigorously combating it, especially specific corruption cases which draw public attention.

"The direction of the Communist Party of Vietnam is that all state cadres and party members involving in corruption must be strictly and justly handed in accordance to the party''s disciplines and the state''s law, regardless who they are, whether they are high-ranking officials or not," said Truong Tan Sang, member of the Political Bureau and standing member of the Secretariat under the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee.

The country has identified infrastructure construction, land management, state budget collection and spending, public asset management and operation of banking systems as priority of its fights against corruption in 2007.

Ministries and sectors conducted 346 inspection cases in 2006, detecting economic wrongdoing worth 6,267 billion Vietnamese dong (roughly 391.7 million dollars), nearly 4.2 million dollars, and 395,890 euros (over 475,000 dollars), according to the Government Inspectorate. Meanwhile, the country''s Ministry of Public Security investigated 7,772 economic crimes, of which 338 corruption cases were prosecuted.
