The city’s business community has the tradition and skills to overcome difficulties, he said.

He added that in 2022, besides the prolonged impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the city's economy was affected by high inflation, fluctuating real estate market, and the bond market.

However, the city's manufacturers, exporters, and digital technology service providers recovered quite well.

Concluding at the year-end meeting of the city’s Party Committee in 2022, Politburo member, Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Van Nen emphasised after a year of socio-economic recovery and development, the city overcame difficulties and regained what it lost due to the pandemic.

The spirit of solidarity in the political system and social consensus increased, creating a positive spillover effect on the trust of the people and business community. He said the city's leaders sincerely thanked the dedication, sacrifice, and active and effective contributions of cadres, civil servants, public employees, labourers, and armed forces in the city.

The business community, organisations, inpiduals, and people joined hands and united, contributing to generating positive important results, paving the way for the successful implementation of the city’s 5-year socio-economic development plan.

A model of reform, innovation, and development Entering 2023, the city set 15 key goals, particularly targeting a GRDP of 7.5-8%.

The year is themed "Improving the quality of public services, accelerating administrative reform and improving the investment environment."

The city will focus on removing difficulties for businesses, strengthening discipline, administrative discipline, and improving civil service ethics.

These are all issues that people and the business community always pay much attention to. 2023 is a very important year as it is the year of acceleration and development momentum for the remaining two years of the 2020-2025 term.

As the world situation will continue to be complicated and unpredictable, the city’s Party Committee and authorities are determined to be more proactive and adaptive, to bring into full play the spirit of dynamism and creativity on solving obstacles, unleashing resources, and promoting the strength of the great national unity bloc.

“Facts show that with determination, unity, and acting for the people, authorities will gain public trust and support, then reap successes,” Nen said.

After a recent working session with leaders of the city, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh asked the city to focus on three growth engines - consumer services, public investment, and import/export activities.

PM Chinh emphasised the need to turn HCM City into a model of innovation and creativity in science and technology applications and creative start-ups.

It must be the locomotive, the model of reform, innovation, and development of the whole country.

The city is also expected to be a high-quality human resource training hub of regional and international stature.

It targets to further develop digital government, digital economy, digital society, smart city, green transformation, and achieve a sustainable development./.
