NDO - Politburo member and Secretary of Hanoi Party Committee, Hoang Trung Hai, emphasised the crucial role of the municipal Department of Planning and Investment in the social-economic development of Hanoi, asking for further administrative reforms to facilitate the people and enterprises.

At the working session on August 2, the Secretary said that the department plays the role as 'chief of the general staff' for social and economic activities deployed by the capital city, requiring the department to improve the quality of its advisory work, particularly strategic consultancy for the city's development.

Director of the municipal Department of Planning and Investment, Nguyen Manh Quyen, said that the department has carried out a huge amount of work to achieve the set targets over the past few years.

In the first half of 2018, the department provided consultancy for the municipal People's Committee to approve in principal 50 projects with a total investment of over VND158.6 trillion.

The department also set up a working group to accelerate the disbursement of public investment and implemented a series of measures to reduce administrative procedures related to business registration, Quyen noted.

In particular, to support newly established enterprises, as of August 1, 2018, the department will bear all costs related to the establishment of businesses, while streamlining all procedures related to business registration.

Quyen added that the department is also working to submit a project to the People's Committee on supporting start-ups in terms of administrative procedures, fees, costs, accounting, and land for production, among others.
