A report by the Ministry of Planning and Investment has found that a number of State-owned enterprises (SOEs) failed to comply with regulations on disseminating information.

Just more than 38 per cent of 620 SOEs which were required to publish information under the Government’s Decree No 81/2015/ND-CP made public their information, but their dissemination was not adequate as requested, the report said.

Sectors with the most firms that failed to disseminate information included irrigation, forestry and lottery.

Member companies of giant SOEs also failed to publish information, such as five under the Viet Nam Oil and Gas Group, two under the Viet Nam National Chemical Group, six under the Viet Nam Coal-Mineral Industries Group and four under the Viet Nam Rubber Group.

The decree required firms to regularly make public nine reports, but on average, firms just announced four.

Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue in October last year gave a push to the information dissemination of SOEs. Accordingly, the Ministry of Planning and Investment has been told to list companies which did not make public their reports as required and raise measures for handling. — VNS
