At the monthly Government meeting in Hanoi on October 1, Prime Minister Phuc directed the agricultural sector to channel its focus on processing, exports, and the building of value chains. 

The Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism was asked to branch out high-quality tourism and improve the quality of service. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Planning and Investment must work to accelerate the disbursement of public investment.

As the economic restructuring aims to reduce dependence on foreign capital, the Government leader stressed that policies must be mapped out to develop domestic enterprises.

Furthermore, he asked the Ministry of Planning and Investment to enhance connection between foreign direct investment (FDI) firms and local firms. 

Underlining the significance of completing mechanisms and improving the business climate, PM Phuc asked competent agencies to accomplish projects to submit to the National Assembly in the upcoming meeting while cutting unnecessary business conditions for investors.

He required ministries and sectors to make meticulous preparations for the eighth session of the 12th Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee, as well as the upcoming the National Assembly meeting.
