The document puts forth 11 major tasks and solutions divided into nearly 200 tasks to be assigned to departments and agencies.
The delegates expressed their approval for those orientations, saying 2021 is of significance as it marks the first year of the implementation of the resolution to be adopted at the 13th National Party Congress.
Some suggested assigning greater tasks to each ministry, agency and locality, devising mechanisms to promote innovations, further ironing out snags facing projects, and adding the initiative to plant 5 billion trees to the resolution so that it can be materialised in early 2021.
Presiding over the meeting, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc affirmed the Government’s attention to people and investment attraction.
Ministries and agencies must define development requirements, targets and orientations, particularly major institutions, mechanisms and policies to address new issues and create development momentum for each sector.
The resolution should chart growth scenarios, as well as main tasks, targets and solutions, covering investment, export and consumption, the Government leader requested, reminding ministries and agencies that safety, job and income remain the public’s concern.
According to the PM, the plans on planting 5 billion trees and sustainable social welfare need specific measures.
He also mentioned the US Treasury Department’s labelling Vietnam, along with Switzerland, as a currency manipulator, in accordance with the US Department of Finance December report on the macro-economic and foreign reserve policies of the US’s trade partners.
He assigned the ministries and ministerial-level agencies to continue joining hands with US partners to maintain their cooperation in the time ahead, thus bringing practical benefits to people and businesses of both sides./.VNA
