NDO - The Prime Minister’s working group, led by Minister and Chairman of the Government's Office, Mai Tien Dung, had a working session on September 20 with the Ministry of Health (MoH) on the specialised inspection of import-export activities under the management of the MoH.

Minister and Chairman of the Government’s Office, Mai Tien Dung, conveyed the Prime Minister’s request to the MoH on devising measures to remove any obstacles in import-export activities under its management.

On the one hand, the requirements on state management must be met, whilst on the other hand, it is necessary to create favourable conditions for enterprises in their production and business activities. In particular, barriers and sub-licenses must be removed in order to avoid overlapping procedures.

The MoH was also asked to promptly complete the proposal on amendment of Decree 38/2012/ND-CP detailing the implementation of a number of articles in the Law on Food Safety.

The Ministry should also deal with the inadequacies in the implementation of the national one-stop-shop mechanism, as only five of the 55 registered administrative procedures have been implemented so far.

Speaking at the session, Health Minister Nguyen Thi Kim Tien affirmed that the MoH will focus on reducing the unnecessary procedures and licenses, as well as improving the specialised inspection of activities for imports and exports under its management.
