Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc asked for solutions to raise gross regional domestic product (GRDP) during a teleconference between the government and localities on July 2.

Pointing out indiscipline, corruption, prolonging group interest and red tape as hindrance to national economy, he said agencies need to deal with them to bring the country forward.

The PM requested continuing to promptly remove unreasonable and unnecessary business conditions.

The Vietnamese business environment must be made better with the principle of equality, safety, transparency and cost reduction, he said, adding that it is necessary to improve the efficiency of State management thanks to the support of technological advances and personnel appraisal work.

He said in the recent two years, business climate has improved but the result is uneven among ministries, agencies and localities.

The government asked ministries and agencies to cut half of goods subject to inspection and half of business conditions. Many ministries and agencies are yet to build and submit recent decrees to the government with October 31 as the deadline. Meanwhile, only 47 out of 284 procedures have been connected to the national one-stop shop portal.

They were required to fine-tune the draft decree on amendments and supplements to legal regulations on business conditions to submit to the government and PM before August 15 so that it could be promulgated before October 31.

He asked them to devise solutions as required by Resolution No.19 on improving business climate and national competitiveness while connecting all administrative procedures on the national one-stop portal.

Improving business climate must be considered a political mission, he said, adding that administrative reform must be done in a practical way.

The leader underscored the need to rearrange taxation, customs, treasury and social insurance units and devise a better and fairer personnel assessment mechanism.

He reminded ministries, agencies and localities to raise public awareness of policies and guidelines so as to fight untruthful information and fabricated rumours, and build strong political system at the grassroots level.

The PM required each government member, Chairs and Secretaries of cities and provinces to review what they and localities have done to meet demand of the country and people.

Each unit and individual must think creatively for development, including in the fight against corruption and group interest while strengthening inspection, he said.-VNA
