Besides epidemic control work, the Government has consistently pursued the policy of promoting socio-economic development in order to strengthen the economy’s foundation and its resilience, Hang said.
She elaborated that under this policy, the Government has worked to ensure supply chains and the trade of goods and services in the country as well as with other countries, while pushing ahead with effort to improve the business and investment environment, cut procedures and costs for enterprises, develop infrastructure and logistics, and actively implement free trade agreements with partners.
The Government has also provided support to enterprises and investors in tackling difficulties caused by the COVID-19 epidemic so as to continue implementing their investment projects in Vietnam, including allowing experts and skilled workers to enter Vietnam while ensuring epidemic prevention, the spokeswoman said.
Despite FDI shown signs of a slowdown as a result of the negative impact of COVID-19, experts believe that the nation will be able to welcome an array of fresh dual investment after the pandemic.
