The request is part of the government’s Resolution No.75/NQ-CP enacted on July 14 after the June meeting and the government’s online meeting with cities and provinces.

Accordingly, regarding the completion of regulations, dealing with the difficulties for business and production activities, and increasing the operational efficiency of administrative units, the government has requested the Ministry of Justice to work with relevant ministries, agencies, cities, and provinces on doing regular checks and then giving recommendations and advice on possible measures and solutions to solve problems and facilitate business activities.

Regarding problems related to decrees, ministries, agencies, and localities have to check and report to the prime minister before July 20.

The government also asked the Ministry of Transport to work with the Ministry of Finance, and relevant agencies and cities and provinces to establish working groups to check and then solve problems related to logistics cost and the lack of empty containers while cutting and stabilising fees for cross-border transportation.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Home Affairs has been requested to soon complete and submit to the National Assembly the scheme on the organisation of the government in 2021-2026, along with work plans with other ministries, agencies, cities, and provinces to restructure administrative units at all levels.

The government also asked ministries and agencies to fast-track the completion and modernisation of documents and the administrative geographical map, and the building of database on administrative boundaries in line with Decision No.513/QD-TTg dated May 2, 2012 and other relevant decisions of the prime minister.

Resolution 75 also highlights other important issues, including making the greatest efforts for prevention and fight against COVID-19, and effectively implementing the nationwide COVID-19 vaccine strategy; keeping the economy stable; taking timely actions to ease hardships for labourers; as well as 11 key tasks for cities and provinces in the second half of 2021.

The tasks include fighting against COVID-19, state budget collection, disbursement of public investment, increasing the efficiency of industrial and agricultural production, market development, and the improvement of the business climate.

The resolution emphasises that the tasks for the second half are heavy and has requested joint and greater efforts from all to overcome the challenges so as to fulfil the yearly social-economic targets.
