After reopeing, HCMC will receive hundreds of daily flights and thousands of people a day. It will be costly for the city to test all arrivals for coronavirus infections.
Thus, Party Chief Nguyen Thien Nhan has asked departments in different sectors to build their own health and safety regulations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and residential area.
He also focused on applying supporting policies for employees and businesses affected by coronavirus from now until the middle of May.
He urged speeding up the construction of public investment projects, such as the HCMC-Moc Bai expressway project, transport infrastructure in Thu Thiem New Urban Area in District 2, the Beltway No.2. 
Speaking at the meeting, Standing deputy chairman of HCMC People's Committee Le Thanh Liem said that the growth rate of all industries in the city has suffered dramatic falls compared to the same period last year due to the outbreak. Although the total value of export goods reached VND 9.85 billion, up 7.5 percent compared with previous year, but Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP) in a quarter increased only 0.42 percent from the same period last year .
COVID-19 will continue to effect various fields in the social life. Its impact will be also seen on the investment environment and socioeconomic development, he stressed.
The municipal People’s Committee has asked all units to make every effort to implement assigned tasks, promote the socioeconomic development effectively as well as prevent and control infection transmission of COVID-19 in localities.
