NDO/VNA – The National Council for Sustainable Development and Competitiveness Improvement should pay attention to issues related to culture and people like waste treatment and environmental hygiene, which is one of many criteria to assess the development level of a country.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam made the request in Hanoi on June 12 while chairing the council’s meeting after its consolidation.

Regarding the education, Deputy PM Dam said in terms of sustainable development, apart from providing knowledge, attention should be paid to teaching how to be a human being.

The council should focus on the issue, thus giving policy advice to the Government, he added.

To take advantage of the fourth Industrial Revolution, aside from common tasks such as building e-government and publicity and transparency of all-level administrative agencies’ activities, the council may choose some areas that have many opportunities for development like textile and logistics, according to the deputy PM.

He also gave specific opinions on the organisation and operation of committees under the council, emphasising the council’s role of gathering core expert groups with professional qualifications and prestige to integrate science into the council’s operation.

At the meeting, the council’s members focused their discussion on the coordination and working mechanism of the council, especially in issues of public concern.
