NDO - Minister and Chairman of the Government Office, Mai Tien Dung, said that the streamlining of overlapping regulations on the specialised inspections of import-export goods and business conditions have seen modest changes and are yet to meet the requirements of the Government.

The Government official made the remarks at a working session with ministries and agencies on July 12 to review their streamlining of business conditions as assigned by the Government.

Minister Dung, who is head of the Prime Minister Working Group, said that over the past week, the Prime Minister has twice urged the ministries to submit their decrees on reducing business conditions to the Government.

The PM also asked the Government Office to draft his directive on strengthening the reform of the specialised inspection of goods and cutting administrative procedures, especially for import and export goods, Minister Dung noted.

Minister Dung said that the Working Group carried out a number of inspections of ministries and agencies this year, which showed that the reform of cumbersome procedures has yet to be implemented absolutely.

"Many ministries have developed plans to review their business conditions and published them in newspapers and on television, but in reality they have yet to take any action, which will affect the trust of businesses," the Government official said.

Minister Dung asked the ministries and sectors to continue hastening the review of all legal documents in order to eliminate and revise overlapping regulations that hinder the business activities of enterprises.

The Ministries and sectors concerned were urged to report the results to the Government before August 15 this year instead of July 30.
