It needs to press on with removing obstacles facing enterprises and people, swiftly carry out anti-pandemic tasks, drastically implement the socio-economic recovery and development programme issued by the Government in late January, and closely follow the NA’s Resolution No. 43/2022/QH15 on fiscal and monetary policies supporting this programme.
