After the NA approved a resolution with an endorsement rate of 100% on the election of the prime minister, Chinh was sworn in before the NA and the people and pledged loyalty to the fatherland, the people and the Constitution. He said he would strive to fulfill his duties assigned by the Party, the State and the people, the local media reported.

Chinh said the Government’s top priority now would be fighting the pandemic, which has been raging in many parts of the country, to protect the health and lives of residents. The Government will also focus on socioeconomic development and propose policies to support enterprises and the people amid the current difficulties.
