This morning, the Executive Committee of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee for the term 2020-2025 chaired by Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Nguyen Van Nen held the fifteenth conference.
Speaking at the opening of the conference, Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Nguyen Van Nen recalled the city’s situation over the past year with many difficulties caused by the Covid-19 epidemic, besides the results achieved in the first six months of 2022.
He reiterated what the city has done from which to resolve existing problems.
Mr. Nguyen Van Nen informed that BA.4 and BA.5 sub-variant of Omicron were present in HCMC warning that the Covid-19 epidemic continues to have very unpredictable developments; therefore, administrations in localities and organizations must be alert to the disease.
Worse, in particular, Ho Chi Minh City is seeing an increase in dengue fever cases with 11 dengue-related deaths so far.
According to Mr. Nen, Ho Chi Minh City has directed localities to simultaneously launch troops to kill mosquitoes and their larva to prevent the epidemic. The Department of Health proposed more drastic measures against dengue fever.
In particular, the risk of inflation, high consumer prices, unstable labor market, a downgrade in the administrative reform index, the slow implementation of public investment plans, and slow absorption of capital in many fields must be considered carefully.
Furthermore, obstacles to institutions, policies or administrative procedures are cumbersome, wasting the time of people and businesses. He heard of complaints from residents and businesses.
In addition, the city has not been able to improve urgent problems such as violation of construction orders, traffic, encroaching on roadways, and sidewalks, congested roads, flooded roads, and environmental pollution.
