On restoration of industrial production amidst COVID-19 prevention and control
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has seriously affected production and business activities of enterprises as well as the health and lives of people. The Party Central Committee, National Assembly, and Government adopted many resolutions, directives and instructive conclusions on prevention and control of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the active engagement of the whole political system, business community and people, up to now, the pandemic has been step by step controlled and basically repelled. At a video conference of manufacturing enterprises based in industrial parks, export processing zones, hi-tech parks and industrial clusters, People’s Committees of 28 provinces and centrally run cities, ministries and central agencies, enterprises raised their voice about difficulties in production and business: not a few production and supply chains have been broken, leading to cancellation of domestic manufacturing orders while the workforce becomes insufficient, etc. In order to timely remove difficulties for enterprises on the principle that “production must be safe and safety for production”, the Prime Minister requests:
1. Enterprises, in the role as the subject of the process of production and business restoration, to closely work with provincial-level People’s Committees so as to reach agreement on plans on organization of goods production and circulation and arrangement of travel and accommodation for workers, ensuring absolute safety amidst complicated developments of the pandemic.
