In the past, before PAR, the cadres and civil servants in Vinh Long province were bossy, harassing, and keen on authority and created difficulties for enterprises and people when handling administrative procedures. Business registration procedures were cumbersome and only being reformed slowly. Many businesses/enterprises and people had to return many times to relevant administrative agencies to complete documents which cost them a lot of time, effort and money (for gifts for staff). Procedures for new business registration, for example took over half a month, while procedures for changing the business operation also took at least up to 5 to 8 days. Recently, however, administrative procedures reform has created a lot of change in cadres’ actions and mindsets. Citizens in Vinh Long say cadres are more and more responsible and more friendly than before.
