In his opening remarks, PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc reviewed a number of notable points in the nationalsocio-economic performance as the two thirds of 2016 has gone by.


Highlighting the spirit “words go together with actions”, the PM asked cabinet members to focus on discussing if the apparatus really works towards people and businesses or not.


With the spirit of government in action, he insisted spending time on the work of institution building. Accordingly, the government will discuss five draft laws, one decree, one ordinance and a number of other important documents.


PM Phuc requested renovation of the law building mindset, aiming to ensure feasibility and reasonability and create a favourable legal corridor for people and enterprises; assessment of the impacts of policies and collection of opinions from policy beneficiaries.


Regulations and policies must be clear, comprehensible, and easily applicable, and respect the settlement of violations, thus demonstrating the strictness and deterrence of the law, he said.


The government leader also asked cabinet members to focus discussion on the draft decree on the working regulations of the new-tenure government, and assigned the Government Office to collect opinions and finalize the decree before submitting it to the PM for approval.


At the meeting, the government will hear a report by the Finance Ministry on the situation and measures for effective management and economical use of public assets.

The monthly cabinet meeting plans to last two and a half days, with one and a half days spent on discussing institution building and one day on discussing the socio-economic performance in August and in the first eight months of the year./.
