This means that the fields which the state does not need to hold have not yet attracted the private funds.

Groups and corporations that have been not drastically equitized and divested capital and still psychologically waiting for the regulations of the State " said by Vuong Dinh Hue, Head of the Steering Committee.

From 2017 to 2020, the Deputy Prime Minister noted that the target of arranging and improving the efficiency of SOEs’ performance is to create a stronger and more substantial progress, in which equitization is only a solution which narrows the scope of SOEs’ operations in the fields of security and defense, and fields that private enterprises do not want to invest and cannot afford to invest. SOEs which are remained must renovate their administration for effective operation.
The Deputy Prime Minister suggested the Steering Committee for Enterprise Renovation and Development to draft documents of leaders of the Government, urge the ministries, localities, groups and corporations to continue to grasp the Resolutions of the Party, the Government and the National Assembly in this field to improve the efficiency of SOEs’ performance, in which the main task is enterprise administration.
The Ministries and sectors must complete legal documents, and enhance the inspection, supervision and prevent the loss of state capital, especially negative signs in capital divestments and equitization. Overcoming the legal inadequacies of equitization to ensure that this process takes place quickly, promptly and in compliance with the law. Resolutely handling the weak enterprises in the spirit of Resolution No. 05 / NQ-TW that is the State does not spend more money to restructure the enterprises.
