Hanoi (VNA) – Resolution 162/NQ-CP issued by the Government has defined 2019 as a year of breakthrough in development in order to successfully implement the 2016-2020 socio-economic development plan.

The Government also set the motto for 2019 as “Discipline, integrity, action, creativity, efficiency”, under which ministers, heads of agencies, and chairs of People’s Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities are required to uphold their responsibility towards the country and the people, maintain strong leadership and close supervision of the operation of their subordinates, and pursue reform.

The Government urged ministries, sectors and localities to actively press ahead with the implementation of tasks on economic restructuring and growth model switch as defined in Resolution 5-NQ/TW dated November 1, 2016 of the Party Central Committee, Resolution 24/2016/QH14 dated November 8, 2016 of the National Assembly, and Resolution 27/NQ-CP dated January 21, 2017 of the Government.

*Improving investment, business environment

The Government required ministries, agencies and localities to continue to build consensus on developing the private economic sector and implement their assigned tasks under the Government’s plan of actions to carry out the Party Central Committee’s Resolution 10-NQ/TW and other Government resolutions on bettering business environment and supporting enterprises’ development.

Ministries, agencies and localities should take the initiative in reviewing existing mechanisms and policies and proposing necessary adjustments and revisions to facilitate the development of the private economy.

At the same time, they should continue to popularise the standards and content of the socialist-oriented market economy and actively implement the Party Central Committee’s Resolution 11-NQ/TW on perfecting institutions of the socialist-oriented market economy.

 *Working towards a digital Government, digital economy

To accelerate the building of an e-Government towards a digital Government, the Government required ministries, ministerial agencies, government agencies and People’s Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities to increase the pace of building institutions and full legal foundation for the work. They must work harder to complete fundamental national databases and establish app systems to serve the people, enterprises and the Government’s management and governance.

Ministries and ministerial-agencies must give more responsibility in administrative reform to officials holding top positions, while continuing to review and streamline administrative procedures and business conditions, preventing the arising of new business conditions and commodities subject to specialized inspections, and abolishing the combination or addition of business conditions to legal norms issued by ministries, sectors and localities.  

The Government urged the effective implementation of the national and ASEAN single window systems, the one-stop-shop mechanism for all administrative procedures meeting requirements set by Decree 61/2018/ND-CP, and the one-stop-shop portals at ministerial and provincial levels.-VNA
