Furthermore, MPS has made a formal request for the project to assist in developing an implementation guideline for the revised Penal Code on Anti-money laundering. This will directly support the achievement of national development priorities.

This anti-money laundering project which relates to LSDS and government's anti-corruption MDGs, particularly at sub- strategy will contribute to good  governance which in turns will  support the MDGs. For example, improved systems in addressing money laundering and corruption will lead to good governance which will channel the public funds to address education and health concerns as well as measures aiming to eradicate poverty, HIV/AIDS and other MOGs issues, rather than the funds being embezzled for benefits of individual public officials.

The project will contribute to the broader human rights agenda by  improving good governance and targeting rights holders and increasing capacities of the legal and law enforcement institutions to fight various predicate crimes. As a result of good governance, all Vietnamese  people will benefit from government properly channelling the needed resources for:

  •  Health system - to improve maternal health, reduce child mortality and reduce rates of HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases;
  •  Education system – to achieve universal primary education;
  • Social security - to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger;
  • Sustainable environment to protect people's livelihood and living conditions.
