Regular Dialogues with Vietnamese Citizens

Vietnamese Prime Minister, Nguyen Tan Dung, has opined a simplification of administrative procedures and issued a new decree to allow ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies and the chairmen of cities’ and provinces’ People’s Committee to hold regular dialogues with Vietnamese citizens. This dialogue is to take place every 6 months and through it, Vietnamese government and its citizens will be able to communicate on a regular basis. The dialogues will serve as a means to streamline and simplify the administrative procedures, which, in turn, will lead to easier entries into Vietnamese market for foreign invested enterprises.

Government to hold regular public discussions:

베트남 수상 Nguyen Tan Dung은 행정절차의 간소화를 주창하며 모든 정부부서의 장관, 시, 구의 People’s Committee회장이 정기적으로 베트남 시민들과 대화를 나눌 수 있도록 새로운 법령을 냈다. 이러한 대화는 6개월마다 정기적으로 열릴 예정이며 이를 통해 시민과 정부부처의 소통이 원활하게 이루어 질 것으로 기대된다. 이 대화를 통해 행정절차의 어려움을 해소하고 절차의 간소화를 이루어 낼 것으로 전망되어 이후 외투기업의 베트남진출이 보다 쉬워질 것으로 예상된다.
