Year-end cabinet meeting focuses on institution building

Cabinet members focused discussions on the building of institutions during a regular meeting in Hanoi on December 29, also the last sitting of the government in 2017.

Addressing the event, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said building institutions and laws is a difficult task, asking ministers to pay due attention to the issue. The ministries must coordinate with the National Assembly’s agencies during the acquirement, adjustment and completion of documents, especially those receiving feedback from the legislature. 

The cabinet members also looked into a draft Law on Vietnamese Coast Guard, a proposal on building a draft Militia Law (revised) and a draft Law on Public Security (revised), and a proposal on adjustments and supplements to the law on the issuance of legal documents 2015.

Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung presented a report on the implementation of the economic restructuring plan during 2016-2020, which says 44 out of 66 tasks set for ministries and agencies have generated clear outcomes. 

PM Phuc applauded efforts made by ministries, agencies and localities in economic restructuring, thus helping to fulfill socio-economic tasks in 2017. 

He urged greater endeavours to realise resolutions adopted by the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee and the NA, as well as Resolution No. 27 of the Government on economic restructuring, considering this as a key task in tandem with reforming the growth model. 

The government leader emphasised the need to complete modern and integrated market economy institutions, and create the best possible conditions and environment for businesses, including the private economic sector. 

It is necessary to reform methods of regional economic connectivity and promote the role of coordinating agencies from the stage of making plans to supervising the deployment of regional connectivity activities, he said. 

Public investment should yield fruits along with maximising non-State resources, he said, stressing that the private economic sector must become a driver of the economy.
PM Phuc also ordered the acceleration of equitisation and divestment of state capital and improved operations of state-owned enterprises.
