HCM City (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Council (ninth tenure) convened its seventh session on March 15 to decide on major matters, aiming to utilise special mechanisms and policies.

In her opening remarks, Chairwoman of the council Nguyen Thi Quyet Tam stressed the need to roll out a very specific development plan in order to materialise the National Assembly’s Resolution No. 54 on piloting special mechanisms and policies for the city’s development.

The successful implementation of such mechanisms and policies would create a momentum for the southern metropolis to grow further, while contributing more to the nation, she said.

During the two-day meeting, the delegates will mull over the implementation of the programme on streamlining administrative procedures, improving people’s satisfaction and launching public services in the city.

They will also discuss fees, income of public servants, policies to attract experts, scientists and young creative labourers during 2018-2020, and personnel in public agencies in the locality.

In November 2017, the NA issued Resolution No. 54/2017/QH14 on piloting special mechanisms and policies to bolster the development of HCM City. Later, the municipal People’s Council issued Resolution No. 25/NQ-HDND on implementing the resolution. -VNA
