HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính chaired the Government’s November thematic meeting on Saturday about the compilation of several important strategies and programmes.
The meeting focused on an overall strategy on COVID-19 prevention and control in 2021-2023, a programme on socio-economic recovery and development, a project on the Eastern North-South Highway in 2021-2025, and a proposal to be submitted to the Politburo and the National Assembly for issuing a resolution on piloting specific mechanisms and policies on highway development for 2021-2025.
Participants gave opinions on the targets of those strategies, programme and projects, their key and detailed contents, along with main tasks and solutions to achieve the set targets. They also discussed the assignment of work to implement them.
Regarding the overall strategy on COVID-19 prevention and control in 2021-2023, PM Chính required that the people and enterprises should be put at the centre and the grassroots level be made the basis when developing the strategy. He said the strategy should clarify prevention and control measures corresponding to each level of the pandemic.
As for the socio-economic restoration and development programme, the Government leader directed that the programme should be combined with economic restructuring, digital transformation, climate change response and especially the three strategic breakthroughs specified in the 13th National Party Congress’s resolution.
Concerning the project on the Eastern North-South Highway in 2021-2025, PM Chính urged relevant ministries and agencies to urgently complete the project to submit to authorities for consideration. He said resources for the project should be mobilised from the private sector.
The PM also required that the resources for implementation should be made clear in the strategy, programme and project. — VNS
