– The Politburo has
agreed in principle to continue issuing policies supporting the employees and employers
hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chairing the Politburo’s meeting in
Hanoi on June 25, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong said the complex
COVID-19 outbreaks since 2020 have substantially affected production, business,
and service activities, especially in industrial parks, export processing
zones, businesses employing a large number of workers, and populous
provinces and cities, seriously impacting people’s employment, life, and
He applauded ministries, central agencies, and localities’ activeness in carrying
out the guidelines on measures assisting pandemic-affected people issued by
the Party Central Committee’s Politburo and Secretariat, the National
Assembly, and the Government.
The implementation of the support
policies for people and enterprises since the pandemic broke out last year
holds great political and social significance, helping to minimise losses
caused by the pandemic, recover production activities, ensure people’s life and
safety, continue to promote people’s trust in the Party and State’s policies,
and reflect the superiority of the regime, according to the Party leader.

Despite certain achievements in the
COVID-19 combat, numerous difficulties remain and the disease situation is
still complicated, he pointed out, requesting vigilance be maintained.
Support will be provided for employees
and employers hit by the pandemic so as to simultaneously sustain production activities
and fight against the disease, which are also the twin targets of the country
now, he added.
At the meeting, the Politburo assigned
the Party units at the Government and the National Assembly to base on its
opinions to order relevant agencies to devise, soon issue, and effectively
carry out support policies.
The Party chief demanded the National
Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control, ministries, sectors,
and localities make timely response to the pandemic’s developments while
stepping up examination and inspection to strictly deal with any violations and
prevent losses and wastefulness during the enforcement of those policies./.
