ĐÀ NẴNG — Authorities in Đà Nẵng have adopted a resolution on solutions and tasks to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic and tackle difficulties for businesses to fulfil the city's socio-economic development targets this year.
The resolution was approved at a session of the city’s People’s Council on Friday.
The solutions and tasks focus on taking measures to control the COVID-19 outbreak and speed up the implementation of 2020 socio-economic development goals approved by the council at the previous session.
The city will also take urgent measures to support businesses, tackle difficulties for production and ensure social security.
Measures will be taken to continue administrative reforms and simplify administrative procedures to reduce time and costs.
Information sharing will be strengthened to raise public awareness of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Chairman of the city’s People’s Council Nguyễn Nho Trung said the council praised the efforts of the whole political system, local authorities, businesses and people to prevent and control the disease.
The pandemic has had negative impacts on the city’s socio-economic development, particularly in the fields of tourism, services, trade, import and export, transport and education, according to Trung.
Many businesses faced difficulties, forcing them to downsize production or temporarily suspend operation.
In order to help the city and businesses to overcome these difficulties, the city’s People’s Council agreed with these solutions and entrusted the city’s People’s Committee to effectively implement the resolution, he said. — VNS
