The revision and supplementation of the aforesaid legal documents mean to continuously improve the business investment environment which is transparent, equal, safe, and friendly to people and entrepreneurs.

The draft law will continue to cut down on the number of conditional business sectors and unnecessary business conditions while improving investment encouragement and protection policy, and addressing shortcomings in business operation.

Special attention will be put to bettering administrative procedures and reforming the management of business investment activities.
