The inspection is scheduled between the second and fourth quarters of this year.

The inspection plan aims to strengthen the sense of responsibility of investors and foreign-invested economic organizations in complying with investment laws and relevant regulations in their investment and business activities, according to the Hanoi Department of Planning and Investment.

The plan aims to correct any violations committed by investors and business organizations. Appropriate measures will be proposed to the relevant authorities to resolve any violations found during the inspection.

In addition, local authorities are expected to promptly identify and understand the difficulties and obstacles in the implementation of investment projects to provide solutions and support to investors and business organizations within their jurisdiction. The results will be reported to the relevant authorities for consideration and decision-making.

The ultimate goal is to improve the effectiveness of investment projects and foreign-invested economic organizations' activities and align them with Hanoi's socioeconomic development goals and directions.

The inspection will cover various other aspects, including the progress of charter capital contribution and disbursement of registered investment capital. It will also assess compliance with statutory capital contribution requirements in regulated sectors. In addition, it will evaluate the total realized investment capital and its ratio to the total registered investment capital.

The authorities will assess project implementation progress to ensure that investment objectives and commitments are met. It will also verify that projects comply with investment conditions, market access requirements, and criteria for receiving investment incentives and support.

Another critical aspect of the review is to assess the fulfillment of financial obligations to the State. It will assess whether the entities have met the requirements specified in their investment and business registration certificates.

The inspection will focus on compliance with regulations on investment supervision, assessment conditions, and reporting and statistical requirements prescribed by law. In addition, it will examine the extent to which any identified violations have been appropriately addressed and resolved.
