HA NOI (VNS) — The 32nd session of the National Assembly Standing Committee is an important one as it will set the agenda for the 8th NA plenary meeting later this month, Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung said yesterday.
The session got underway at the National Assembly House, which is receiving final touches before its official opening after five years of construction.
On the first day, the committee examined the auditing plan for next year submitted by the Chief State Auditor. The plan focuses on the implementation of NA resolutions and the Government's management of the State budget and investment. The operation of State-owned enterprises and financial-banking organisations will also be discussed as will other projects of public interest.
The State Audit Office also reported that by September 30 it had conducted 143 of 186 audits planned for the year, or 76.9 per cent of the yearly plan.
NA Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu suggested that the auditing plan should keep close to the NA's supervision plan and pay greater attention to socio-economic projects approved by the parliament.
Committee members also recommended that the State Audit Office plays a more active role in auditing activities of foreign businesses that regularly report losses or show signs of engaging in transfer pricing, causing losses to the State budget.
The committee also scrutinised yesterday the draft law on promulgation of legal documents. — VNS
