Enterprises, cooperatives, and business households always play an important role and position in the country’s socio-economic development. They have not only made various positive contributions to economic growth, state budget revenue, export turnover, job creation, income improvement for workers, poverty alleviation and social stability, but also act as an important link in the production networks and value chains as well as one of the core forces in creating wealth and social material. Facing the COVID-19 pandemic’s extremely negative impact on production and business activities, enterprise communities, cooperatives and business households still promote the spirit of unity, self-reliance, self-improvement and determination while stepping up efforts to adapt to difficult circumstances to maintain production, business and jobs for employees. They also uphold the sense of responsibility, share and join with all levels and sectors in disease prevention and control, provide support to the people and communities, organize relief and transport programs and implement social charity activities.
