Meanwhile, the sector will continue to effectively mobilise and use investment resources, focusing on optimising the internal strength of the economy.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment will introduce measures to speed up the restructuring of the transport services sector, thus enhancing the capacity and reducing logistics costs, while supporting the efficient implementation of free trade agreements.

It will also strengthen the data connection, integration and sharing as well as the use of e-documents and e-signatures as well as online meetings, while speeding up the design and approval of national, regional, provincial, urban, and rural planning schemes in the 2021-2023 period.

Along with expanding effective models of cooperatives and encouraging private enterprises, the sector will also work to support the transformation of the industrial sector, focusing on a number of spearhead sectors and new, high-tech, and supporting industries.

Phuong underscored that the sector will continue strengthening the reform of administrative procedures and the single-window mechanism, thus enhancing the quality of services.
