RESOLUTION 02/2021 TO FURTHER STEP UP REFORMS
Resolution 02/2021 is expected to continue to step up reforms to further improve the business environment and enhance national competitiveness.
The Government recently issued Resolution 02 on improving the business environment and enhancing national competitiveness. The message of Resolution 2/2021 is improving the business environment; enhancing national competitiveness is a constant and continuous central task.
Dr. Phan Duc Hieu, Deputy Director of the Central Institute for Economic Management (CIEM), said that Resolution 02 was drafted in a very new way with targets and contents of Resolution 02/2019 being maintained, and unfinished content to be sped up for completion in 2021.
“There are four contents that the Government places greater emphasis on. The first is innovation. Specifically, this time, the Government saw that our reforms have been mainly conducted within one ministry or branch of authority, e.g. the Ministry of Industry and Trade or the Ministry of Health. However, enterprises are affected by interagency. Indeed, many matters cannot be solved by a single ministry. The new point of Resolution 02 is strengthening coordination of ministries and branches to thoroughly tackle the matter of concerns, focusing on matters that have concerned enterprises for a long time,” he said.
The second key content is the importance of digital transformation in the new context. If we do not implement changes, we will be eliminated. Moreover, the Government should play a leading role by its greater focus on promoting digital transformation in all governmental activities, services and interactions in the digital environment.
“We must complete e-government, then move to digital government, and motivate businesses to go digital as well. At the same time, we must create a market where businesses can provide digital services when the Government conducts digital transformation,” said Mr. Hieu.
“We can see positive results in the implementation of Resolution 02/2020/NQ-CP such as the exemption of license fees under Decree 22/2020/ND-CP, reducing the granting time of construction permits (Construction Law 2020) and raising investor protection level (Enterprise Law 2020),” Mr. Hieu noted.
He also admitted that there are still some unfinished tasks, especially the connection to specialized management and inspection of imported and exported goods, and business conditions in many decrees and laws still presenting trouble for enterprises.
“However, the successful implementation of Resolution 02 in the past term has created a special mark, not only on the approach and the way of action, but importantly on significant improvements of the business environment,” he stressed.
