The pilot model will be implemented from July 1, 2021 until it is terminated by the NA. 

The pilot civil service model is expected to streamline the government apparatus, and handle urgent issues faster, clearly define the leaders’ responsibilities, reduce the payroll and save public budget. 

Accordingly, the new administration model will abolish the People’s Council in 177 wards of 12 districts and Son Tay town for the tenure 2016 – 2021.

The metropolitan area will have only two levels of administration: city and district. Wards under districts are ruled by the People's Committees and without the People’s Council. Rural areas still retain the model of three levels of administration (city, district, commune).

Wards in Ha Noi will not have the People's Council but the People’s Committee which consists of a chairman, two deputy chairs and members in charge of military and police affairs. Members of the People’s Committees are appointed and dismissed by the chair of district or town.

Under the resolution, the Government will make a preliminary report on the pilot model to the National Assembly Standing Committee and the NA in Q4, 2023./.
