Mr Dau Anh Tuan, Deputy General Secretary and Head of the Legal Department of the Vietnam Confederation of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) said that the companionship and support of the authorities of provinces and cities across the country to support businesses' careers is very important. However, provinces and cities need to continue to make more efforts to create a favorable business and investment environment. In addition, some administrative areas need paying more attention to promote reform in the coming time, such as taxes, land, social insurance, fire prevention and safety, and conditional business license procedures. Furthermore, it is necessary to continue facilitating enterprises in accessing information and reducing informal costs in the coming years.
