The draft law will continue to cut down on the number of conditional business sectors and unnecessary business conditions while improving investment promotion and protection policy, and addressing shortcomings in business operations.
Special attention will be paid to bettering administrative procedures and reforming the management of business investment activities.
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said the draft law is meant to remove any barriers for businesses to operate effectively.
In addition to tightening state management, it is necessary to create a favorable environment according to the market economy, he said.
The Prime Minister directed the Ministry of Justice to coordinate with the Ministry of Planning and Investment in collecting opinions from organisations and individuals to soon complete the draft law and submit it to the National Assembly for passage to push business activities and economic growth.- (VNA/VLLF)
