Jul. 27 – The government campaign to simplify 258 priority administrative procedures is now in its implementation phase after being adopted last month.
The Advisory Council for Administrative Procedure Reform Secretariat is currently collecting feedback on the simplification plans. The campaign is under resolution number 25 that follows the principle “one document amends all” with the goal to cut down on the bureaucratic process.
Some of the administrative procedures to be revised span from procedures on public security to management functions of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
Dealing with Vietnam’s complex and changing regulations, and the government procedures that come with them, is one of the challenges of doing business in the country. On average, it will take an investor 50 days to launch a business in Vietnam, according to the World Bank Group’s Doing Business 2010.
