HÒA BÌNH — The People’s Committee of northern Hòa Bình Province has implemented regulations under different forms for different subjects since early 2021, to fulfil a master plan on administrative reform and public services.

Specifically, the province published new legal documents, policies and regulations of the central and provincial authorities on the provincial portal and websites.

As a result, institutions, policies and laws have been widely implemented, helping to create a positive impact on all aspects of social life, particularly in key areas to attract investment; improving efficiency of State apparatus; contributing to socio-economic development, ensuring social security; and maintaining security and defence of the province.

Adopting the Resolution No 08/2004/NQ-CP, dated June 30, 2004 and the Resolution No21/NQ-CP, dated March 21, 2016, of the Prime Minister on decentralising State management between the Government and People’s Committees of central-level provinces and cities, the People’s Committee of Hòa Bình Province issued regulations on decentralisation in such fields as State budget management, investment management, management of organisation apparatus, cadres, civil servants, public employees and contracted workers, and land management.

The decentralisation work of the province has been made in line with legal regulations and helped relevant agencies and units to deal with their tasks as well as to increase the responsibilities of heads of agencies and units in fulfilling their functions.

The provincial departments of home affairs, finance, planning and investment and natural resources and environment issue inspection plans and carry out inspections over fields decentralised for the People’s Committees at district and commune levels every year.

Inspection results show that they all carried out management decentralisation publicly and transparently in line with regulations and their jurisdiction.

The chairman of the provincial People’s Committee fully and timely issued plans to review, examine and assess administrative procedures and guided relevant agencies and units to implement.

The review showed that the simplification plans of 208 administrative procedures were approved by the chairman of the People’s Committee, decreasing expenses by 25.3 per cent.

 The review focused on: shortening the time to handle administrative procedures, getting rid of unnecessary documents and reducing notarization requirements; clearly requiring documents needed for dossiers; reducing the amount of dossiers needed and time to handle administrative procedures; clearly regulating the implementation process and method; and removing unnecessary information, unreasonable requirements and conditions that waste time and money.

Following the Decision to publicise administrative procedures of central-level ministries and sectors, the Chairman of the People’s Committee of Hòa Bình Province has announced 8,796 administrative procedures within jurisdiction of provincial agencies, sectors and People’s Committees of districts and communes.

These include promulgation, amendment and supplementation of 5,707 procedures, and removal of 3,089 procedures.  

Immediately after the announcement, all administrative procedures were published on the National Database on Administrative Procedures, the provincial portal and websites of local departments, agencies, sectors, districts and communes as well as being publicly listed at one-stop shop units at all levels.

The one-stop shop services have been effectively implemented at one-stop shop units at all levels. In 2017, the provincial People’s Committee decided to establish the Public Administrative Services Centre under the People’s Committee’s Office where all administrative procedures of central-run departments, agencies and units based in the province will be received and handled.

So far, 100 per cent of one-stop shop units at district level and 34 per cent of one-stop shop units at commune level are equipped with modern devices and equipment.

The one-stop shop software was connected from the province at 100 per cent of units at districts and communes to handle 1,895 administrative procedures, including 527 procedures at provincial level, 251 procedures at district level and 117 procedures at commune level.

All administrative procedures under the jurisdiction of authorities at all levels are handled via the online one-stop shop services. From 2011 to March 2020, the province received over 4.2 million administrative procedure dossiers. A total of 99.96 per cent were settled on time.

The completion and rearrangement of the apparatus of administrative agencies and units was one of key tasks resolutely directed by the provincial People’s Committee, with the aim of streamlining the apparatus, cutting payroll and improving State management efficiency and effectiveness as well as the efficiency of public units. — VNS
