In Resolution No. 119/NQ-CP issued on September 27, the Prime Minister asked that the formulation of national planning, regional planning, and provincial planning for the 2021-2030 period be completed before December 31, 2022.

The resolution focuses on tasks and solutions to improve the quality and speed up the formulation of master plans for the 2021-2030 period.

It states that planning work must be one step ahead and implementation must comply with legal provisions on planning and closely follow and cement resolutions from the Party Congress at all levels and the ten-year socio-economic development strategy for 2021-2030.

He requested that ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies, and chairmen of the People’s Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities take responsibility for planning and identify it as a key task and priority for all levels and sectors. All involved must strengthen coordination and information sharing to remove obstacles and difficulties. Issues beyond their competence must be summarized and reported to relevant authorities for consideration and decision.

Legal documents and guiding documents must be amended or supplemented before October 31, 2021 in order to ensure uniformity. The information system and national database on planning must be completed and put into operation before December 31, 2021. Before October 31, 2021, relevant ministries and agencies must assume the prime responsibility for and coordinate with the Ministry of Planning and Investment and the Ministry of Justice in reviewing and submitting to the government for consideration and decision any amendments or supplements or end the implementation of regulations that are not in accordance with the provisions of the Law on Planning and other legal documents.

The Prime Minister also allowed adjustments in the planning for the 2011-2022 period where necessary. Adjustments can be considered and integrated into the planning for 2021-2030, ensuring links, synchronization, and stability between plans.
