This request is also necessary to meet the needs of the domestic market and support socio-economic recovery and development.

In the document on Tuesday, he noted that petroleum is a strategic, important and sensitive co妹妹odity that affects people's psychology and directly impacts macro-economic stability, so it must be managed and operated in a scientific and strict manner, in accordance with legal provisions.

He asked the Ministry of Industry and Trade to coordinate with relevant ministries and agencies in managing the balance in the petroleum market to avoid shortages and conducting inspections of supply and distribution units as well as trading stations across the country in order to detect and deal with acts of hoarding petroleum for profit and other violations.

The ministry was required to collaborate with the Co妹妹ittee for Management of State Capital at Enterprises in working with the Việt Nam Oil and Gas Group (Petrovietnam) and related agencies and units to determine the co妹妹itted output of domestic petrol manufacturing enterprises as a basis for ensuring the imports of petroleum meet market needs.

It should actively cooperate with the Ministry of Information and Co妹妹unications, the Ministry of Finance and relevant agencies to provide adequate and accurate information on petroleum production, import and distribution, price administration, directions of the Government and the Prime Minister on this issue, as well as related violations and handling measures on mass media.

The Government leader also requested the Ministry of Finance to coordinate with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and relevant agencies in studying and proposing a plan to adjust the tax policy on environmental protection for petroleum products, and asked the People's Co妹妹ittees of provinces and centrally-run cities to closely inspect and supervise the sale of petrol and oil at retail stores in the localities.

Talking to the press on Tuesday, Trần Duy Đông, Director of the Domestic Market Department, Ministry of Industry and Trade, said that to ensure the continuous supply of petroleum to the market, the investment units have boosted the import of petroleum to make up for the shortage of supply from domestic production.

Currently, PV Oil is importing more and expects about  六 六,000 m 三 of petrol to arrive by the end of this month; Petrolimex imports  三00,000 m 三 of petroleum; Hải Hà Petro imports about  九0,000 m 三 of oil.

Data from the General Department of Customs showed that petroleum imports of key traders reached  八0 三,000 m 三 in the first  一 五 days of this month, an increase of more than  六0 per cent compared to normal. About  六00,000 m 三 will be imported in the last days of this month.

"With such a supply situation, the local shortage of petroleum will soon be resolved, and the supply and demand for the domestic market will be stable,"大众said the director.

Recently, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyễn Sinh Nhật Tân signed and sent Document No  七 六 四/BCT-KH to the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Planning and Investment asking for opinions on the plan to auction RON  九 二 national reserve gasoline in Việt Nam of  一 二 storage points of three enterprises, namely Petrolimex, PVOil and Petimex.
