NDO - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has said that his conference with the business community should be an opportunity to express the resolve to revive the economy following the coronavirus outbreak.

A conference between the head of government and businesses is scheduled for May 9 to discuss how to restart the economy after the lifting of social distancing measures to prevent Covid-19.

At a preparatory meeting on May 6, most agreed that a resolution should be issued after the conference to deal with the difficulties facing enterprises so as to bolster production and business.

The Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry stated that the conference is taking place at the right time as the coronavirus has essentially been brought under control in Vietnam, while many countries in the world are still gripped by the outbreak.

PM Phuc noted that the conference is not for whining but to show the spirit to overcome difficulty and the determination to restructure the economy and accelerate economic growth.

He urged the relevant agencies to make careful preparations for the conference and utilise every minute of it so as to create a specific product, which could take the form of a resolution or an action programme.
