HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung yesterday called for more efforts to be made to properly handle all legal documents to help speed up the passing of needed laws in 2014.
The PM, who was chairing a cabinet meeting in Ha Noi on proposed laws, also asked ministries to gather the opinions about proposed laws from Cabinet members in a bid to more quickly finalise draft laws.
Additionally, he said he would require ministries and agencies to promptly submit their proposals for 2015 laws and ordinances by January, which will then be discussed at a regular cabinet meeting early next year.
Also at the session, Minister of Justice Ha Hung Cuong said that ministries and ministerial-level agencies had made great efforts to implement the law and ordinance building programme in 2013.
The Government issued opinions on 27 draft laws and ordinances, while ministries and ministerial-level agencies jointly revised ten draft laws, which were then considered by the National Assembly and the NA Standing Committee in 2012. According to the minister, 36 draft laws and ordinances will be submitted to the legislature and the law committee in 2014.
He further suggested that ministries and ministerial-level agencies pay more attention to human resources and the implementation of the law and ordinance building programme.
The minister also proposed that the Government convene at least two sessions in 2014 to solely deliberate draft laws and ordinances. — VNS
