The mechanisms and policies have been piloted in the city since January 2018 following Resolution 54 in 5 years. In October this year, the Government suggested that the NA allows HCMC to continue piloting some special mechanisms until the end of 2023 instead of 2022.

Mr. Hue He asked the city to focus on implementing four major policy groups, including existing policies included in Resolution 54 that have proved their efficiency; policies that are not included in Resolution 54 but are being carried out effectively in other localities; policies allowing the city to apply amended and supplemented contents of some revised laws; and policies exclusively applied for HCM City to remove obstacles facing the city.

He said: “Ho Chi Minh City is allowed to apply earlier than the whole country amendments and supplements to a number of bills such as the revised Land Law and revised law on Medical Examination and Treatment. It means when the Resolution is issued later, Ho Chi Minh City can apply it immediately. In addition, new and separate policies for Ho Chi Minh City are needed to remove obstacles. The common spirit is to support the city's development as much as possible”
