During the discussion on May 31, NA deputies gave many ideas on how to effectively implement the socio-economic development and State budget plan.Ha Duc Minh, a deputy of Lao Cai province, pointed to the slow disbursement of capital for three national target programmes in the 2021-2025 period, which affects the efficiency of the programmes.
Minh proposed that the NA and Government to consider the allocation of non-business capital to the programs for the entire period, like public investment, to localities so that they could be more proactive in planning and implementing the programmes.
The deputy held that one of the major reason behind the slow implementation of the programmes is problems in ground clearance.
Alongside, the Government should direct relevant agencies to build a framework for evaluating the programs' results and effectiveness, laying a foundation for localities to assess their own performance in the work, he said.
