Conducting workshops on introduction of macro management concept

1. Context

The project “MARD Macro Management” funded by UNDP and the Royal Netherlands Government was officially launched since September 2007. The long-term objective of the project is “Developing MARD into a modern macro level management ministry, responsible for policy formulation and implementation; organizing and managing public service delivery to the farmers based on clear and well monitored quality standards and ensuring stable agriculture and rural development in Vietnam in the process of integration into the global economy”.

During the public administration reform process, the Government of Vietnam has persisted in organizing the multi-sector management ministries. Therefore, the number of the line ministries was considerably reduced, from previously 26 ministries and ministerial equivalents and 13 government affiliated agencies (for 11th legislature) down to 22 ministries and ministerial equivalents and 8 government affiliated agencies (for 12th legislature). However, the macro management implementation for the line ministries and branches, especially in the multi-sector management ministries, is still a vague and controversial concept. In other words, the organizational structure of certain ministries was designed as per multi-sector management model, while their operation and management way seems to be unchanged. This has caused certain constrains for the social economic development of the country, especially in the context of deeper integration of Vietnam to the global economy.

The MARD Macro Management project is a sole project aimed at supporting the Government of Vietnam in developing and applying macro management ministry model. The successful implementation of this model will constitute a significant contribution to changing the steering and management mode of the ministries in coming times. For ARD sector, a broad sector covering different domains that requires close collaboration with other line ministries and directly related to the life of 70% of the population living on agriculture and in rural areas, the promotion of the public administration reform in MARD is a great significance in separating state management functions and public service delivery arrangement and management tasks, and promoting the decentralization and the participation of the people during decision making process. These reform results will contribute to create favorable conditions for the equal development between different economic sectors, the labor force liberation, the better response to the market economy and international integration requirements.

In order to achieved its planed objectives, in 2009 the Project will focus on supporting MARD to prepare the MARD Macro Management Proposal to make it a benchmark for the functional and responsibilities review and analysis to identify the gap between the current status of MARD macro management and its vision. All these exercises will be led by MARD’s officers while their knowledge and experiences in confronting these tasks are limited. Therefore, it is necessary to provide knowledge on MARD Macro Management, international experiences in formulation and implementing MARD Macro Management, methodology/approaches of functional review and analysis to enable them to adapt to changes smoothly and fulfill these above tasks. In the light, the project plans to assist the Department of Organization and Personnel to organize 02 workshops to introduce macro management concept and its related issues to leaders, managers and officials of MARD who are assigned to take the lead in developing MARD Macro Management proposal .Each workshop will last in 2 or 3 days.

2. Objective:
To enhance the knowledge for MARD core officials on macro management and to strengthen the ministry’s determination to developing a modern and macro management ministry model in order to meet requirements of a sustainable agriculture and rural development in Vietnam in the context of market economy and global integration. This is a starting step to provide an introduction and orientation on macro management concept.
