Speaking at the opening of the Conference, VCCI’s Mr. Pham Tan Cong said, “the conference was held in eight provinces and cities across the country. This is the 16th consecutive year that the Business Dialogue Conference has been organized by the Ministry of Finance and VCCI, showing the Ministry of Finance's determination in reform and in accompanying businesses in overcoming difficulties related to administrative procedures. This is an opportunity for the Ministry of Finance and relevant agencies to discuss the problems troubling businesses and introduce solutions to reduce the burden on the business community.”

"The tax and customs sectors have continuously reformed administrative procedures and changed their thinking and working style in a modern and professional way. With regard to living together with the pandemic, the conference showcases the efforts of the Ministry of Finance and VCCI in supporting businesses in business and production recovery”, said Pham Tuan Cong.
