The Prime Minister has just approved a national programme to support enterprises to improve the productivity and quality of products and commodities for the 2021-2030 period.
The programme aims to support businesses in adopting standards, technical regulations, advanced management systems and tools to enhance the productivity and quality of products and commodities, contributing to increasing the national total factor productivity (TFP) and competitiveness of the economy.
Programme facilitates enterprises to improve productivity and product quality.
It sets specific objectives for two periods. In the 2021-2025 period, 65% of the national standard systems (TCVN) will be harmonised with international and regional standards, while there will be capacity building and training for about 600 specialists and consultant staff on productivity and quality at ministries, agencies, localities and businesses.
Meanwhile, in the 2026-2030 period, the harmonisation rate of the TCVN system with international and regional standards will reach about 70-75%; while the number of specialists being trained and certified will increase to 1,000, of which about 200 experts will be certified with regional and international qualifications.
Over next 10 years, the number of enterprises supported with solutions to improve productivity and quality is expected to increase by 10-15% per year, of which the number of certificates for ISO 9001 quality management system and ISO 14001 environmental management system granted to businesses will increase at least 10 per cent compared to the 2011-20 programme.
In order to achieve these goals, the programme sets out tasks and solutions, focusing on enhancing mechanisms and policies to boost productivity and quality, researching and proposing solutions on science, technology and innovation to improve national productivity as well as the productivity of each industry, province and enterprise in the economic restructuring process.
