Vinh Phuc (VNA) – The northern province of Vinh Phuc is pushing the review of functions, tasks, power and organization of provincial and district-level departments of the local administrations with a view to streamlining the apparatus.

At the same time, the province continues to work to reduce the number of staff on State payroll by at least 10 percent compared to 2015, while trying to recruit young scientists and students newly graduating from universities with outstanding academic results to work in spearhead sectors such as health care, education, construction, transport, economic affairs, and natural resources and environmental protection.

Vinh Phuc is also focusing efforts on implementing tasks set in the Notice 130-KL/TU dated May 10 this year in merging centres and reshuffle financial funds outside the State budget.

Deputy director of the provincial Home Affairs Department Hoang Thanh said after three years implementing Project 01-DA/TU of the provincial Party Committee’s standing board and related resolutions of the Party, the apparatus from provincial to grassroots levels has become more compact and efficient, reducing overlapping in tasks and power as well as intermediary links.

He cited as an example that three sub-divisions (irrigation, land management and environmental protection) and 58 sections in provincial-level departments and agencies have been resolved. The number of public non-productive units in the province has been reduced by 106, including 49 units in the education-training sector, 14 in health care, and 16 in all-level project management. /.
