HÀ NỘI — National Assembly (NA) Chairman Vương Đình Huệ asked agencies of the NA and its Standing Committee to focus on collecting public opinions on the draft amended Land Law.
He chaired a meeting on Tuesday with agencies under the management of the NA Standing Committee and NA Office to review performance in January and map out plans for February and the following months.
Huệ said two extraordinary NA sessions were held in January with important decisions made.
The NA passed the amended Law on Medical Examination and Treatment; a resolution on the National Master Plan, among others.
The NA also made important decisions on personnel work.
In January, one of the outstanding results was parliamentary diplomacy. The highlight was the official visit to Việt Nam of the President of the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s National Assembly - the first high-ranking RoK leader to pay an official visit to Việt Nam after the two countries upgraded their relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership.
The NA leader asked NA committees to make preparations for the NA Standing Committee’s meeting scheduled to last for four days as well as implement other key NA projects.
NA committees were told to select problems for question and answer activities.
Huệ asked the NA’s Committee on Legal Affairs to preside over forming the Law and Ordinance Development Programme in 2024 and make amendments to the Law and Ordinance Development Programme in 2023.
He urged the committees to make efforts to complete collecting public opinions on the draft amended Land Law with the deadline set to be in March.
Four major topics selected for the NA’s supervisory programme this year are energy, textbooks, three national target programmes and healthcare.
According to the plan, the NA Standing Committee and the NA will hold question and answer sessions on arising issues. Huệ asked the NA committees to select practical issues for the question and answer activities.
Huệ said this year, the NA would conduct a vote of confidence for posts it elected and approved. Therefore, the work of preparing for deputies to properly assess their confidence with these positions would also be an important responsibility of the Council for Ethnic Affairs, and committees of the legislature and its Standing Committee.
The top legislator also required the early and good preparations for State budget estimates and settlement, and parliamentary diplomacy, including foreign visits by the NA Chairman and Vice Chairmen, and the organisation of the Global Conference of Young Parliamentarians. — VNS
