Compared to 2019, Bac Giang saw an increase in the score of two out of eight dimensions: vertical accountability toward citizens (5.15 points), up 0.17 points; and public administrative procedures (7.61 points), up 0.08 points. The remaining six dimensions namely public service delivery, transparency, environmental governance, control of corruption in the public sector, e-administration, and participation at local levels, had points down over the previous year.
Through the PAPI 2020, departments, sectors, specialized agencies, and People's Committees at all levels can clearly assess the limitations and focus on remedial measures, striving for a professional, modern and effective public administration.
The PAPI measures the people's experiences and feelings about the effectiveness and quality of the implementation of policies and the delivery of public services by local governments.
