The Directive urged the MPI to build a draft decree on incentive mechanisms and policies for the National Innovation Centre and submit the draft decree to competent agencies in the first quarter of 2020.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Science and Technology should continue to implement the project on supporting the national innovation start-up ecosystem by 2025 and technology incubators and report the results to the PM in the first quarter of 2020.

The PM also requested the building of three innovation and startup centres at three universities as well as promoting the startup ecosystem within the education sector.

In particular, PM Phuc asked for the establishment of a capital trading platform for startups and the result should be reported to the PM in 2020-2021 period.
