Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung told the meeting that in the first 2 months of the year, most sectors achieved better results than the same period last year while the macroeconomy was stable and inflation was controlled.

The consumer price index (CPI) in February increased 1.04% compared to January. Agricultural production was stable and industrial production increased 5.7%. International visitors surpassed 3 million, an increase of 68.7%. Social security was guaranteed and people's lives have improved.

Prime Minister Chinh asked Ministers, Heads of Sectors, and Chairmen of People's Committees of localities to continue implementing tasks and solutions drastically, according to the conclusions of the Party Central Committee, the Politburo, the National Assembly, and the Government. He said promoting growth needs to be associated with ensuring macroeconomic stability, controlling inflation, and major balances of the economy.

Mr. Chinh said comprehensive actions should be carried out to develop culture, society, education, healthcare, social security, and sustainable poverty reduction to improve the material and cultural life of the people.

Actions should be enhanced to effectively implement the Party and State external activities, maintain a peaceful and stable environment for national development, prevent and combat corruption and negativity, and consolidate national defense and security to firmly protect independence and sovereignty.
