Can Tho City is focusing on helping businesses prosper by simplifying procedures and facilitating start-ups.

The city People’s Committee has requested departments and districts to work on a directive issued by the Prime Minister on facilitating creative start-ups and reducing unimportant procedures and regulations, with the aim of helping businesses approach markets more easily.

Authorities will also issue documents to help small business households upgrade to official enterprises/companies without applying for another permit, and will facilitate non-cash payment methods such as through mobile devices and cards.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environment plans to create solutions to shorten the time needed for procedures involved in certifying land property ownership, property ownership transfer, and land-use rights registration.

Meanwhile, the Department of Science and Technology will help the city issue instructions on developing an innovative start-up ecosystem and connecting innovation networks both in and out of the country.

Over the past few years, Can Tho has been making progress on business development. There are more than 8,300 businesses in the city, accounting for 26 per cent of businesses in the Mekong Delta. — VNS
