These decrees guide the implementation of the Investment Law. They are Decree 57/2016/ND-CP on amendments and supplements to Article 7 of Decree 10/2010/ND-CP on credit information; Decree 58/2016/ND-CP on trading and import-export of civil cryptographic products and services; Decree 60/2016/ND-CP on business conditions in the environment and natural resources sector; and Decree 62/2016/ND-CP on judicial assessment in the construction sector.

The other four decrees are Decree 63/2016/ND-CP on business conditions for registration of motor vehicles; Decree 64/2016/ND-CP on amendments and supplements to Decree 11/2010/ND-CP on management and protection of road infrastructure; Decree 65/2016/ND-CP on business conditions for the car driver training and driving test sector; and Decree 66/2016/ND-CP on business conditions for protection and quarantine of plants, seedlings, wild animals, husbandry, seafood and food.

They are the first among 50 Government decrees on business conditions guiding the implementation of the Investment Law.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc ordered drafting committees to lift inappropriate business conditions and sub-licenses, and make business conditions clear and transparent. 

More business conditions were removed in the decrees than those in the drafts though ministries and agencies tried to copy business conditions in their circulars and past them onto the draft decrees. However, the Prime Minister told them to stop doing this.

As a result, Decree 63/2016/ND-CP does not require register organizations and officers to stop their jobs in case their certificates are damaged or lost. 

Meanwhile, Decree 66/2016/ND-CP lifts many business conditions on food trading and has four pages instead of 18 pages in the draft.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has eliminated all business conditions for three sectors: trading of ornamental and shade trees, trading of firewood and trading of fishing nets and tools.

Speaking at a meeting on law making in Hanoi last month, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc called on ministries and agencies to complete the drafting of decrees on business conditions so that the Government could issue them on July 1.

There existed 6,000 business conditions issued by ministries, agencies and local authorities. According to the revised investment law, all the business conditions which were illegally issued by ministries, agencies and local authorities in their circulars and documents, became invalid on July 1.

From this month, there are only six sectors prohibited and 267 others subject to business conditions.
