HCMC – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has sought breakthroughs in administrative reform this year and asked heads of agencies and localities to take responsibility for the job.
At a meeting on March 9 of the steering committee for the administrative reform, the Government leader said in 2021, the country improved the legal foundations for the administrative reform, cut administrative procedures and processes to facilitate residents and enterprises, enhanced investment in information technology and digital transformation to serve the administrative reform and contributed to fighting against corruption harassment in administrative agencies.
Vietnam’s index on improving regulations in 2021 rose six positions.
However, the administrative reform has yet to meet the development demand and the expectations of locals and enterprises.
Therefore, the prime minister required making breakthroughs in administrative procedures relating to residents and enterprises to mobilize resources to develop the country and improve the effectiveness of ministries, agencies and localities.
He said investing in the administrative reform meant investing in development, and the investment must be efficient.
PM Chinh ordered the revision and improvement of processes, regulations and standards on administrative procedures to facilitate residents and enterprises and the connectivity among agencies.
He also required enhancing and increasing the efficiency of the provision of online services, especially 25 essential administrative procedures, sharing the population database to the national public service portal and effectively combining online and in-person working.
Agencies must listen to and resolve the problems of residents and enterprises, closely and effectively coordinate with each other to ensure the progress and quality of tasks, learn from other countries’ experiences in administrative reform and mobilize international resources for the job.
