The 18-member committee is responsible for developing a plan for national-scale economic census, collecting basic information on production and business activities, and conducting comprehensive assessment on the status of the national socio-economic development.  

Specifically, the census aims to collect information about production and business units, non income-generating administration agencies, non-governmental organizations and individual production and business establishments, among others.

It is expected to provide a comprehensive assessment of the country's socio-economic development situation and trends and will serve as a basis for building socio-economic development plans and policies for the Party and State.

The investigation will focus on gathering information to identify surveyed units, labor and income, production and business costs, tax payment and budget contributions, scientific research and technological development (R&D), innovation, energy consumption, technology application, financial access, and others./.
