HCM City (VNA) – The standing boards of the People’s Council, People’s Committee and Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Ho Chi Minh City will enhance coordination to popularise and implement resolutions on piloting special mechanisms and policies for the city.

Municipal authorities held a meeting on March 6 to review their coordination in 2017.

In November 2017, the National Assembly issued Resolution 54/2017/QH14 on piloting special mechanisms and policies to bolster the development of HCM City. Later, the municipal People’s Council issued Resolution 25/NQ-HDND on implementing the resolution.

Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Phong said coordination among the three standing boards has proved effective, creating favourable conditions for deputies to supervise the State and local administration, deal with local problems in a timely manner and help the city achieve its targets.

He said the People’s Committee will play a more active role in the coordination, especially in the implementation of the National Assembly’s resolution.

Echoing the view, Chairwoman of the People’s Council Nguyen Thi Quyet Tam said a focus of the three standing boards’ coordination would be resolution implementation.

Addressing the event, Politburo member and Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan recognised the synchronous coordination among the standing boards in resolution implementation.

Regarding the planned increase of local government workers’ salaries, a right HCM City has under the special mechanisms and policies, he said the salary hike will be made in 2018, based on people and businesses’ feedback. 

He asked the municipal Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee to assess people and businesses’ satisfaction of public workers’ performance. Those evaluations will be a basis for authorities to decide an appropriate salary bump.-VNA
