Dak Nong (VNA) – The People’s Committee of the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong organised the second dialogue with enterprises on June 14 to collect feedback and address their difficulties in a bid to help them improve the efficiency of production and business activities.

Participating enterprises highlighted a range of difficulties and challenges hindering their operations, mainly related to land, natural resources, policies, credit, finance, taxes and agriculture.

They pointed to difficulties in getting access to loans of commercial banks as well as state mechanisms and policies, complicated tax payment formalities, high land rentals, troublesome administrative procedures and low transparency of the local business environment.

At the dialogue, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Xuan Hai pledged to support local enterprises overcome these difficulties and obstacles.

The Centre for Public Administrative Services has been put into operation for nearly one year, marking one of the province’s efforts to speed up administrative reform to better serve local enterprises and residents, Hai said.

Groups of measures will be taken in the time ahead to create favourable conditions for enterprises to expand and improve the efficiency of production and business, thus generating more jobs for local labourers and bolstering the province’s socio-economic development, he added.

Dak Nong is now home to nearly 3,500 enterprises with a combined registered capital of nearly 30 trillion VND (1.32 billion USD). So far this year, 177 new firms have been established.-VNA
