TRANSPARENCY IN FORESTRY PRODUCTION: KEY FINDINGS FROM BASELINE SURVEY FOR IMPACT MONITORING OF VPA FLEGT

Transparency has long been regarded as one of the most important principles in socio
economic management and state administration. Since its accession to the World Trade
Organization (WTO), Vietnam has paid special attention and promoted transparency in
all aspects, as it is one of the essential requirements to improve the efficiency of state
management, ensure democracy and international commitments. In forestry production,
in the context of the VPA-FLEGT that the European Union and the Government of
Vietnam signed in October 19, 2018 in Brussels, Belgium, and the implementation of
FLEGT licensing scheme planned from 2020, the full application of the transparency
principle is an important and urgent task. During the baseline survey and investigation of
