(VOVWORLD) - On Thursday, National Assembly deputies discussed the government’s proposal to reduce the value-added tax by 2%. 

Deputy Le Thanh Van of Ca Mau province proposed the government to implement short-term programs to respond to current economic difficulties, focusing on fiscal and monetary policies.

Deputy Dinh Ngoc Minh, a full-time member of the National Assembly’s Economic Committee, said that the Government should concentrate on just one or two solutions to recover the economy. He recommended that the NA should issue a resolution to help businesses, covering tax policies and the business environment.
