The resolution (27/NQ-CP) lays out some basic economic principles and goals, including curbing inflation at under five percent a year and cutting the budget deficit to less than 3.5 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2020.

In addition, public debt will be limited to no higher than 65 percent of GDP, while government debt and foreign debt will not exceed 54 percent and 50 percent of GDP. The government also pledges to divest capital from all enterprises that the state has no need to own more than 50 percent. By 2020, the country will have at least one million active businesses, and 15,000 cooperatives and agricultural cooperative unions with healthy operations.

Policies for the development of the private sector are addressed in detail in the resolution, too. Accordingly, the law on supporting small and medium-sized enterprises will be submitted to the National Assembly for approval, while officials are called on to improve their attitude so they can serve enterprises. In addition, provincial and municipal people’s committees must organize regular dialogues with the business community and the media at least twice a year; and effectively implement the government’s resolutions on improving the business environment and increasing national competitiveness.
