As for the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Mr. Hue said Hanoi remains steadfast in pursuing the dual targets of both containing the pandemic and boosting socio-economic growth.
In the coming time, Mr. Hue expected the city to achieve its highest possible socio-economic objectives, while pushing for drastic measures to ensure economic recovery.
The Hanoi’s Party chief noted measures are needed to address slow disbursement of public investment and sluggish privatization and divestment processes at state-owned enterprises, among others.
According to Mr. Hue, Hanoi would continue to improve its business environment and promote high quality investments.
For this year, Hanoi targets an economic growth rate 1.3 times as high as the national average and strives to fulfill the state budget revenue targets set by the National Assembly.
