HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc requested all localities and sectors to continue simplifying administrative procedures while chairing a conference of the Government’s Steering Committee for Administrative Reform in Hà Nội on Thursday.
He ordered a reduction of unnecessary business conditions and specialised inspections, along with a focus on refining legal institutions, revising outdated documents, and improving the quality and efficiency of law enforcement towards the socialist-oriented market economy.
The PM urged the Ministry of Justice to issue criteria for monitoring and evaluating the efficiency of law enforcement of ministries, sectors and localities.
According to reports at the conference, the Ministry of Home Affairs has provided consultation to the Government’s Steering Committee for Administrative Reform in compiling the Public Administration Reform Index (PAR Index) and the Satisfaction Index of Public Administration Services (SIPAS) in 2017.
In the third quarter of last year, the ministry worked with relevant agencies to conduct a survey of more than 30,000 individuals and businesspeople to compile SIPAS in 2018.
At present, 39 localities have built provincial public administration centres to handle such procedures for their communities.
The Steering Committee for Administrative Reform has assisted the Government in issuing decrees on the functions, tasks and organisation of 18 ministries, four ministerial-level agencies and six agencies under the Government.
The work has contributed to streamlining the apparatus of many ministries, and reduced 40,500 persons on the payroll. — VNS
