Ha Noi targets to raise its PCI and PGI rankings in 2024- Ảnh 1.

The Ha Noi Institute for Socio-Economic Development Studies will advise the city's People's Committee to issue a set of indicators to assess the competitiveness of the city's departments, sectors and local authorities by June 2024.

Before March 18, 2025, the city will conduct an annual survey, evaluate it, and publish this set of indicators.

The plan outlines specific targets for enhancing the component indices of the Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI).

These include maintaining the current ranking for the "Labor Training" index, increasing the "Business Support Policies" index by at least three positions, advancing the "Transparency" index by at least five positions, and achieving an upward movement by at least 10 positions in seven key indices: "Time Costs," "Fair Competition," "Dynamism and Proactiveness of Provincial Leadership," "Informal Charges," "Market Entry Costs," "Land Access," and "Legal Institutions and Security.

The targets for the PGI component indices include an increase of at least ten ranks in the indices for "Promoting Green Practices," "Minimizing Environmental Pollution and Climate Change Impacts," "Ensuring Compliance with Minimum Environmental Standards," and "Policies and Services to Support Enterprises in Environmental Protection".

The Municipal People's Committee has assigned the responsibility to the heads of departments, sectors and the chairmen of district/town/city People's Committees to coordinate with relevant units to develop and implement plans as well as measures and solutions to achieve the set targets. This will contribute to improving the investment and business environment, enhancing competitiveness, and raising the city's PCI and PGI indices.

The leaders will be accountable to the Chairman of the Ha Noi People's Committee for the results of the component indices under their responsibility. They must also report to the Ha Noi People's Committee on the progress and results of implementation, as required.

Earlier, both Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City saw their Provincial Competitiveness Index (PCI) ranking tumble by 10 and 13 places respectively last year as investors expect more reforms in their business environment./.
