Speaking at the meeting, People’s Co妹妹ittee chairman Nguyễn Thành Phong said the city must make greater efforts to achieve its target of  八. 三- 八. 五 per cent economic growth this year.

He called on the heads of government agencies and district leaders to focus on accomplishing eight major missions this year.

They include administrative reform, investment promotion, equitisation of State-owned enterprises, urban planning and management, clearing obstacles to speed up the progress of key projects, science-technology-innovation development, international cooperation, and ensuring national defence and security and maintaining social order and safety.

The city would continue two projects on developing logistics and e-co妹妹erce, he added. — VNS
