HÀ NỘI – Minister of Industry and Trade Trần Tuấn Anh has asked agencies and organisations in all localities to strengthen the fight against corruption and trade fraud.

The call came in the minister’s recent decision to implement the National Assembly’s resolution requesting ministries address the issues raised in oral questioning in the 8th meeting of the 14th National Assembly last November.

The decision requires the General Department of Market Surveillance to work with other agencies and local authorities to inspect, prevent and control smuggled and counterfeit goods, low-quality goods and goods without clear origin and violating national sovereignty.

The Department of Import and Export will build an import and export strategy for 2020-30.

The department also needs to issue regulations on how to identify Vietnamese goods or made-in-Việt Nam goods, while monitoring the issuance of certificates of origin and strictly handling fake Vietnamese origin goods.

In addition, the minister asked departments of Trade Promotion, Import and Export and Overseas Markets to propose solutions to renovate trade promotion activities to diversify export markets, reducing reliance on certain markets.

It also asked the Department of Trade Remedies to support enterprises in handling trade disputes, providing information and market warnings for exporters, as well as implementing trade remedies to protect domestic industries.

The Competition and Consumer Authority needs to strictly manage and supervise multi-level business activities.

The E-commerce and Digital Economy Agency will study and complete policies and laws on e-commerce, build an ecosystem for e-commerce and digital economy while monitoring the quality of goods traded online.

The decision also assigned the Department of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Electricity Regulatory Authority to review inadequacies in the planning, investment and operation of power projects, especially solar power projects.

At the same time, they shall propose mechanisms and solutions to soon put delayed power projects in the master plan for 2011-20 into operation to meet electricity demand this year and beyond.

According to the decision, building mechanisms and policies to encourage technological innovation, manufacturing mechanical products and developing the support industry is a priority of the Department of Industry this year. — VNS
