However, the number of cases in the world is still large while our economy has a large openness and deep integration. Prime Minister suggested the meeting to discuss some issues such as opening international routes. The number of experts, skilled workers, investors, and managers entering Vietnam is not small. Currently, many localities have recommendations to bring experts and managers to implement projects. So the problem is to have appropriate measures. Besides, overseas Vietnamese have more and more demand for water. Isolation management must also be raised. Another problem is the strict control of entry from the border. Speaking at the opening of the meeting, the Prime Minister said that society was back to work quite bustling. Support package for businesses to borrow 0% concessional loans from the Social Policy budget to pay the stop wages for employees, so far, no loan has been disbursed. This shows that the business recovers and soon returns to operation.

The Prime Minister suggested continuing to build up a communication scenario on Vietnam's epidemic prevention and control with the spirit of proactiveness, not losing vigilance in the context of returning to normal operation in the new situation. The dual goal is to prioritize socio-economic development and prevent the COVID-19 outbreak from coming back.

The Government e-portal will continue to inform about this meeting.
