One of the main topics of the meeting was the progress of key national transportation projects, including the North-South Expressway in the 2017-2020 and the 2021-2025 periods, Long Thanh International Airport, Beltway No. 4 in Hanoi and Beltway No. 3 in HCM City, as well as three expressway projects: Khanh Hoa - Buon Ma Thuot, Bien Hoa - Vung Tau, and Chau Doc - Can Tho - Soc Trang.
The delegation also reviewed the socio-economic situation of March and Q1-2022, the recovery and development programs, public investment allocation and disbursement, and defining key tasks and solutions for the future.
Presiding over the meeting, PM Chinh said that the world had witnessed major changes since the Government's similar meeting with Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong on January 5.
There had been numerous challenges as well as opportunities, he said. However, Vietnam had stayed vigilant and made appropriate and timely responses, notably in bringing home Vietnamese citizens fleeing from Ukraine, controlling inflation, flexibly adjusting fuel prices, and dealing with power supply issues.
Over the last three months, under the Party’s and Government’s leadership, and all-level administrations’ governance, along with people and businesses’ support, Vietnam has effectively implemented the socio-economic recovery and development program, he said.
PM Chinh also emphasized the importance of building an independent and self-reliant economy, completing a rule-of-law socialist state and a socialist-oriented market economy, and taking breakthrough solutions for infrastructure development, administrative reform, and improving human resources quality.- (VLLF)
