Not to interrupt reform

Every day that is delayed is every day businesses wait, the chances of economic recovery decrease. When resources for economic recovery are limited, a more favorable business environment with fewer barriers is an important resource for development. Reforms cannot be interrupted or reversed, but must always be directed to a business environment with less barriers and more market-oriented.

Increasing both value and output, Vietnam has become the world's leading rice exporter for many years. This achievement is due to the fact that Decree 107 has removed a series of barriers in this area. However, the draft amendments to this Decree are causing confusion for businesses when stating the condition that the area of ​​the rice warehouse, the capacity of the rice mill, milling and processing facility is at least 5,000 tons of paddy. minimum capacity is 10 tons of paddy/hour - which are conditions that Decree 107 has abolished.

"There are many decrees that have proven to be very successful, well received by businesses and create an important impetus for economic development and business activities, but now they are being proposed in a strict direction. It's more difficult for businesses, so we are very concerned and hope this is just a minority," said Mr. Dau Anh Tuan, Head of the Legal Department, Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Resources here are not only money, but energy, initiatives, science and technology to promote development", said Mr. Nguyen Dinh Cung. , Former Director of the Central Institute for Economic Management and Research, emphasized.

For stronger and more sustainable reform, the supervision and companionship of the whole society is required. To do so, it is necessary to promote the cooperation mechanism between the parties to limit the interruption in reform.
