The Deputy PM said that in 2015, the public debt hit the ceiling of 65% of gross domestic product (GDP) and Government debt exceeded 53% of GDP.

He highlighted the target of ensuring rapid, sustainable development in tandem with addressing the shortcomings of the national economy during 2016-2020, describing this as a hard task for the entire political system.

To that end, the Government has assigned the Ministry of Finance to review the project on the restructuring of budget collection and spending, he said, adding that the Politburo has issued a resolution on measures to restructure the state budget and manage public debt to ensure a safe and sustainable national financial system.

Deputy PM Hue presented a number of solutions taken or to be taken by the Government by 2020, focusing on developing the market economy and combining fiscal, monetary, and other macro policies together.

He underlined the need to push the restructuring of the economy and model of growth, while improving economic competitiveness and developing sustainably.

The official also talked about tax fraud in foreign investment attraction and domestic tax management.
