At the same time, PM Chinh highlighted the major problems of the sector,
particularly the limitations in mechanisms and policies, negative phenomena
within the sector and shortcomings in management decentralization.
He required the
ministry to focus on key tasks of State management of education-training, which
are to build strategies and plans, institutions and mechanisms, and standards
and criteria. The ministry should also develop tools to mobilise resources from
all sources for education development.
The Government leader

the public with better understanding of its problems and get the public
involved in addressing them.
He reminded the sector
to coordinate with relevant agencies to implement pandemic prevention measures
to ensure health and safety for more than 1.2 million teachers and nearly 24
million students at all levels nationwide amidst the complicated developments
of the COVID-19 pandemic.

year, including the national senior high school graduation exams.

and Training Nguyen Kim Son presented to the PM several proposals regarding the
