He said sustainable development is both an urgent need and an inevitable trend of social development.

During 30 years of reform, Vietnam has synchronously implemented various solutions to promote sustainable development, the leader said, highlighting the country’s major achievements such as macro-economic stability, high economic growth and improved growth quality, along with attainments in Human Development Index (HDI), poverty reduction and education.

However, the PM said, these achievements have yet to match the country’s potential and advantages.

The leader pointed out other problems like the inefficient exploitation and use of natural resources, environmental pollution and ecological imbalance in many areas.

Given this, he stressed the need to focus policies and resources on sustainable development, and asked ministries, agencies and localities to integrate the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development into the 2021-2030 socio-economic development strategy, with specific plans and tasks.

PM Phuc called for efforts to speed up the restructuring and improvement of economic institutions, towards the more efficient use of natural resources, energy saving, advanced economic competitiveness, climate change adaptation and poverty reduction.

National strategies on green growth, climate change adaptation, sustainable poverty reduction, circulated and sharing economy should be implemented synchronously, he said.

Besides, more investments are needed to raise the quality of human resources, especially for poor people and remote areas, he said.

Other tasks set by the PM in the conference include improving the performance of all economic sectors, especially the State one, speeding up e-Government building towards the digital Government, society and economy, perfecting the legal framework and business environment, and putting forth incentives to encourage innovations.

He asked the Ministry of Planning and Investment to coordinate with relevant ministries, agencies and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry to issue a resolution on sustainable development based on outcomes of the conference.
