To effectively implement administrative procedure reform, the government and the Prime Minister continue to direct ministries, central authorities, and localities to focus on implementing the following key solutions:

On a regular basis, monthly statistics on newly issued, amended, supplemented, or abolished administrative procedures should be fully compiled, published, and disclosed on the national database of administrative procedures to strictly control the issuance and implementation of administrative procedures.

At the same time, submit to the National Assembly, the Standing Committee of the National Assembly, documents under their authority to implement plans to reduce and simplify administrative procedures, business conditions (details in Appendix VII), including reviews, research, and priority proposals based on the program of drafting laws, ordinances, ensuring scientific accuracy and feasibility.

6. Develop and issue a program to reduce licenses and innovate licensing activities at ministries, central authorities, and localities in the 2025–2030 period to continue substantial and effective reduction of administrative procedures, creating a favorable, transparent business environment, and contributing to economic and social development.

7. Implement Decree 104/2022/ND-CP amending and supplementing some provisions of decrees related to submitting, presenting household registration books, temporary residence cards when carrying out administrative procedures, and providing public services, focusing on exploiting and using information and data of citizens in the national database on population to solve administrative procedures and provide public services.

9. Identify and publicly announce all internal administrative procedures and formalities under the jurisdiction of the central government, ministries, authorities, and local governments; accurately determine the scope and authority for issuing internal administrative procedures and formalities to review, simplify, and ensure the objectives and requirements set out in the Prime Minister's Decision 1085/QD-TTg in 2022.

Organize the pilot implementation of the Single-Window Department Model combining the Single-Window Departments of administrative units at all levels in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong, and Quang Ninh in 2024 before summarizing and scaling up with the aim of facilitating citizens' access to administrative procedures and public services regardless of administrative boundaries, maximizing the scope of receiving and processing administrative procedures at one location based on the application of information technology, and promoting digital transformation.

12. Review, evaluate, and restructure the processes for online public services that are being integrated and provided on the National Public Service Portal, ensuring user-centered principles; prioritize the development, integration, and provision of interconnected online public service groups that meet the requirements of citizens, businesses, and the goals and requirements of the Government and the Prime Minister.

The Task Force for Administrative Procedure Reform under the Prime Minister's Office plays a guiding role in promoting administrative procedure reform in ministries, central authorities, and localities; closely coordinate with the Advisory Council for Administrative Procedure Reform under the Prime Minister's Office to timely identify and address obstacles and difficulties related to mechanisms, policies, and administrative procedures that hinder business activities and people's lives.
