The Government on December 2 issued the resolution of its November regular meeting, requesting ministries, agencies and localities to synchronously and effectively carry out the remaining tasks of this year, surpass the targets and objectives set forth in the 2015 socio-economic development plan, and prepare for the performance of socio-economic development tasks in 2016.
Under Resolution No. 81/NQ-CP, the State Bank of Vietnam is requested to closely monitor market changes, actively regulate the monetary policy in close combination with the fiscal policy, and ensure the stability of the monetary market and exchange rates, especially at the year-end. It is also tasked to raise credit quality in line with stricter examination and control, focusing on priority areas.
The Ministry of Planning and Investment has to work with related ministries, sectors and localities in taking synchronous measures to mobilize all social resources for development investment, and accelerate the disbursement of allocated funding sources, especially for official development assistance-funded programs and projects as well as important and urgent projects.
The Ministry of Finance is assigned to further manage state budget collection and recover tax debts, ensuring correct and full collection. It is also urged to coordinate with the Ministry of Public Security in stepping up the inspection work for preventing tax evasion, and closely work with functional forces to fight smuggling, trade fraud and counterfeit and inferior-quality goods, especially before the coming Lunar New Year festival.
The Government asks the Ministry of Industry and Trade to seek to expand markets, boost key exports and ensure the sufficient supply of consumer goods for people. The ministry also has to review and adjust policies and reform administrative procedures as necessary preparations for implementing the free trade agreement recently signed with the European Union and the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.-
