HA NOI (VNS) — The Ministry of Industry and Trade reviewed and abolished 30 administrative procedures and simplified 54 others in 2015 to allow businesses and citizens to carry out administrative procedures quickly and efficiently.
This was part of the ministry's administrative reform efforts in 2015 were discussed at a meeting yesterday to review administrative reform in 2015 and discuss tasks for 2016.
The ministry upgraded a total of 21 public services to level 3 or 4 last year, which means all applications relating to these public services will be implemented online to save time and costs.
Deputy Director of the Department of Export and Import Phan Thi Dieu Ha said the ministry carried out many administrative reform activities, particularly in exports and imports.
For example, the ministry has joined the national and ASEAN one-door mechanism which were designed to implement paperless trade and e-administrative procedures, helping to facilitate investment activities, she said.
Head of the Personnel Department Dao Van Hai said the ministry promoted information dissemination to raise awareness of administrative reform and guided businesses on implementing the national one-door mechanism.
However, he said, shortcomings remained in administrative reform, adding that a number of administrative procedures were still complicated and time-consuming and the ministry failed to promote the application of information technology in handling administrative procedures.
The ministry also failed to fully abide by regulations on publicizing administrative procedures and receiving and handling complaints related to administrative procedures remained slow, he said.
The ministry published all administrative procedures on its website: http://kstthc.moit.gov.vn. — VNS
