HA NOI (VNS) — National Assembly deputies have decided on the main socio-economic targets for next year.

They include the continuation of the macro-economic stabilisation and inflation control, development at a "reasonable rate" - and enhancing the economy's effectiveness and competitiveness by renewing the development model.

Some targets have been set in a resolution, including lifting gross domestic product (GDP) by about 5.8 per cent, export turnover by 10 per cent and the consumer price index by 7 per cent.

The resolution also took steps to ensure social security and welfare, using natural resources effectively, protecting the environment and actively coping with climate change.

Total investment for social development will be 30 per cent of GDP, which is higher than this year, when total investment capital for social development accounted for 29.1 per cent of GDP.

Deputies also discussed the Prime Minister's proposal to approve the resignation of Nguyen Thien Nhan as a deputy prime minister position so that he can become President of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front. Nhan's resignation will be approved tomorrow. —VNS
