HÀ NỘI —Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Friday chaired a cabinet meeting with representatives of various ministries to discuss key tasks and measures to realise the country's socio-economic development plan and State budget projections for 2020 (known as draft Resolution 01).
Ministry officials said the resolution should identify important tasks and concrete targets for ministries and sectors.
They also suggested the main content of the draft, agreeing that it should be built with a clear focus to facilitate management work in 2020.
Taking note of the ideas, PM Phúc tasked the Ministry of Planning and Investment to collaborate with the Government Office and relevant ministries to complete the draft resolution.
He also highlighted that Resolutions 01 this year had arrived at comprehensive outcomes, with 2019 being the second consecutive year when all the targets had been achieved, especially improvements to people’s lives.
The leader said knots in the law and institution must be pinpointed, along with the maintenance of macro-economic stability and the creation of room for synchronous management.
There must be breakthroughs in the application of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in 2020 as this was a key factor to restructuring the economy, he said, adding the resolution must name concrete measures to take care of people.
The PM also emphasised the need for settlement of air and water source pollution and the liberalisation of land resources.
He asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to propose tasks and measures for Việt Nam to perform in its role as ASEAN Chair and a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, thus raising the country’s position in the international arena. — VNS
