Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has ordered ministries, agencies, and localities to set up their special working groups for tackling difficulties facing businesses and people amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Government Office, on August 30, the PM issued a decision on the establishment of his special working group for addressing difficulties the COVID-19 outbreak has caused on businesses and people.

To carry out solutions relevant to each ministry, sector, and locality in a timely manner, the PM asked ministries, ministry-level agencies, Government agencies, and provincial-level People’s Committees to quickly set up their special working groups headed by their leaders.

These working groups have to direct the effective implementation of tasks and solutions stated in the National Assembly and the Government’s resolutions, as well as the PM’s directions; proactively coordinate with related ministries, sectors, localities, and agencies; actively grasp information and take timely measures to handle difficulties, obstacles, and proposals; and assist enterprises in their production and business activities to safely and flexibly adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They also need to cut unnecessary administrative procedures while not creating “sub-permits” so as to not adversely affect enterprises’ operations and people’s life, thereby helping to promote socio-economic development and achieve the best possible socio-economic outcomes.

The PM also demanded them make reports on the settlement of difficulties on a monthly basis or when necessary, and propose solutions to the issues beyond their jurisdiction to the Cabinet leader, according to the Government Office./.
