HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Monday chaired a Government meeting on law building with the participation of representatives from the Government Committee for Ethnic Minority Affairs as well as National Assembly committees, the Việt Nam Fatherland Committee and ministries.
Addressing the one-day meeting, PM Phúc stressed the significance of promptly overcoming the consequences of the recent tropical Storm Wipha which caused severe losses in some localities, especially Thanh Hóa.
He noted that at the same time, prolonged and heavy rains destroyed sea dykes in Khánh Bình Tây Bắc commune and Trần Văn Thời district in the Mekong Delta province of Cà Mau, inflicting serious property losses on locals.
The leader expressed deep sympathies to the administrations and residents of the affected localities, saying that activities to support them and deal with the aftermath will continue in a timely and effective manner.
At the meeting, he asked participants to give their opinions on draft proposals and reports on the adjustment, supplementation and summary of laws related to many aspects of society.
PM Phúc stressed that amidst the world's rapid development and changing social relations, especially in issues related to non-traditional security, it is necessary to focus on law-building activities to quickly adapt to the changing situation. — VNS
