NDO – The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) held a conference on April 14 to hand over tasks from former Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh to newly appointed Minister Nguyen Hong Dien.

Politburo member, Chairman of the Party Central Committee's Economic Commission and former Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh said that the MoIT has made every effort to overcome many difficulties and challenges in the past tenure to achieve the set targets, making significant contributions to national development and international integration.

At the conference, the former minister also highlighted the main areas of the industry and trade sector, including institutional building, administrative reform, personnel work and e-Government building, among others.

He also emphasised that Vietnam has become a nation with important contributions to the globalisation process through the signing of a series of new-generation free trade agreements which have been attributed to the efforts of staff at the MoIT.

Former minister Tran Tuan Anh also expressed his hope that he and the MoIT will implement various activities to promote Vietnam’s industry, particularly in the development of new energy sources to protect the environment.

“To boost the sustainable development of the industry and trade sector, I and leaders of the Party Central Committee's Economic Commission will always accompany the industry and trade sector and the MoIT to effectively implement tasks towards the development of the sector and the national economy,” Anh noted.

He expressed his belief that Nguyen Hong Dien and the staff at the MoIT would continue to accomplish their assigned tasks while wishing Dien a successful term of office.
