During a meeting with representatives from stakeholders this week, PM Phuc asked relevant ministers and heads of provincial-level People’s Committees to directly guide the disbursement of public investment and help to ease difficulties and obstacles relating to delays in handing out such funds.
He also required the Ministry of Planning and Investment and the Ministry of Finance to supervise and accelerate the process of disbursing public investment and then report back to the government. He added that a working group would be set up to oversee and fast-track the process if required.
Regarding the fields of industrial production, construction, and natural resources, he noted that the Committee for State Capital Management must hasten the execution of industrial projects and take prompt actions to expedite any delayed projects.
PM Phuc called for greater efforts to speed up carrying out large-scale infrastructure projects and to set forth specific timescales relating to the construction and inauguration of such projects.
He asked the Ministry of Transport to set in place measures on shortening the progress of projects and to push forward the construction of the Trung Luong - My Thuan expressway which is looking to connect the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang to Can Tho city.
He urged greater efficiency in administrative reforms while asking ministries to submit their action plans on realizing the government’s Resolution No.02/NQ-CP dated January 1 2019.
The resolution notes the continued implementation of measures aimed to further improve local investment climate and bolster national competitiveness.
As such, the government leader ordered ministers and provincial leaders, especially those from Ho Chi Minh City and localities which are home to key economic zones, to formulate concrete measures on handling issues related to administrative reforms and competitiveness.
