As they only streamlined 4.8percent of staff in the past four year so in the next three years, it isnecessary to cut down personnel by at least1.8 percent each year to achieve a10 percent reduction goal in accordance with the Politburo’s Resolution No. 39,he said. 

The Ministry of Home Affairs(MoHA) will assign personnel quota to ministries, agencies, and localities onJuly 20, said Tan, adding that the PM should soon issue a decree on amendmentsand supplements to Decree No.108 on personnel streamline policy. 

He asked relevantministries, agencies, and localities to promptly report to the MoHA so that itcould offer advice to the Government to deal with the against-regulationpersonnel appointment, recruitment, and rotation activities. 

The ministry has so farreceived such reports from 15 ministries and 34 provinces. 

Regarding the rearrangementof administrative units at communal and district levels, Tan said a total of637 communes in 16 districts need to be rearranged. 

Regarding the renovation ofpublic administrative units, Finance Minister Dinh Tien Dung said thatministries, agencies, and localities remain slow in performing tasks that wereassigned under the Government’s Decree No.16/2015/ND-CP regulatingself-autonomy mechanisms in public administrative units and Decision No.695/QD-TTgon a plan to implement Decree No.16. 

Since February 2015,ministries have submitted two decrees on self-autonomy mechanisms inscience-technology, economic cause, and other fields to the government forissuance. 

Six out of eight decrees onhealth care, high school and tertiary education, vocational training andcommunications and culture are yet to have been issued, which Dung says is tooslow. 

If the progress remains atthis pace, it will be hard to achieve goals in line with Resolution No. 20 adoptedby the sixth plenum of the Party Central Committee, and therefore salary andsocial insurance reform goals are unlikely to be met, he said. 

He added that the Ministryof Finance (MoF) decided to dissolve 42 transaction offices, equivalent toprovincial branches, of the State Treasury from June 1, 2018. 

The Finance Minister pledgedto cut half of 548 taxation branches between now and 2020, asking localities topartner with the MoF to rearrange financial agencies, thus ensuring theireffective operation.
