As part of the general reform process since the introduction of doi moi, Vietnam has undertaken a number of changes of its legal system and legislation in its transition from a socialist planned economy to a market-based economic system. Reforms of the organizational and substantive legislation relating to the public administration, procedures, and complaints have formed part of the overall public administration reforms. Public administration reforms focusing on streamlining and increasing efficiency of administrative governance systems and procedures have involved not only a decentralization and delegation of certain powers to local authorities, but also a range of measures to provide for clearer and simpler administrative procedures, transparency, and remedies against administrative acts.
