HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has asked ministries and agencies to focus and spend more time to strengthen their institutional building activities with direct involvement of the ministers in this work.
Chairing a government meeting which focused on building laws in Hà Nội yesterday, Phúc said the government had prioritised institutional building, but the work still saw shortcomings that require more attention from ministers and better human resources.
While highlighting the Ministry of Justice’s responsibility in verifying draft laws and legal documents, the Prime Minister noted that the ministry must point out shortcomings and irrationalities in these documents before they are submitted.
Concerning compensation for land clearance, Phúc requested taking into consideration the National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee’s conclusion that suggested not separating the compensation and resettlement support into independent projects.
He agreed with the NA Standing Committee’s recommendations on capital criteria to classify national projects, noting that projects worth VNĐ20 trillion (US$860 million) and above would be submitted to the NA for approval, while those under the amount can be decided by the government itself.
He tasked the Ministry of Planning and Investment to work with the NA Committee for Finance and Budget to complete this regulation.
Concurring with Cabinet members, Phúc said the draft law on public investment should regulate the decentralisation to permanent members of the People’s Councils in deciding upon a number of projects and investment portfolios during the period when no session of the councils takes place.
This would speed up the progress of these projects, he said.
At the meeting, Cabinet members gave opinions to reports on the revised draft law on public investment; the draft law on entry and exit of Vietnamese citizens; and the draft law on the amendment and supplement of the law on the organisation of the Government and the law on the organisation of local administration. The draft law on revising and supplementing the Law on Cadres and Civil Servants and the Law on Public Employees was also discussed. The implementation of the resolution on the enforcement of the planning law was also tabled at the meeting. — VNS
