HA NOI (VNS) — Nearly 90 per cent of the National Assembly deputies yesterday voted to pass amendments to the Land Law.
The amended law will take effect on July 1, 2014.
NA deputy chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said the amended Land Law was an important legal document that would have a great impact on the country's socio-economic development in general and on organisations, individuals and households in particular.
Given the law's importance, many conferences and meetings were held to collect opinions from a wide cross-section of society including organisations, individuals, relevant agencies and local authorities, she said.
Before voting, NA deputies heard Nguyen Van Giau, chairman of the NA's Economic Committee, presenting a report on collecting and responding to opinions of NA deputies on the draft amendments.
The amended law has 14 chapters and 212 articles. – VNS
