In her closing speech, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said during the session, the NA Standing Committee adopted four resolutions on important issues within its jurisdiction.

She asked the Government, standing members of the Council of Ethnic Affairs and committees of the NA, the NA Secretary General and relevant agencies to consider opinions raised at the 24th session to finalise reports, draft laws and draft resolutions before promulgating them.

The NA Chairwoman also requested close coordination to promptly prepare for the parliament’s fifth session, scheduled to open on May 21st =.

Before the 24th session concluded, the NA Standing Committee had commented on the draft revised Law on People’s Public Security Force.

Many opinions supported the bill and highly valued efforts by the drafting agencies, especially the Ministry of Public Security which has taken the lead in streamlining its apparatus.

Participants also suggested that the draft should be reviewed thoroughly to ensure its constitutionality and feasibility and the consistency in the law system.

The same day, the NA also commented on the draft law on amending laws related to the Law on Planning.

Deputy NA Chairman Phung Quoc Hien said, ‘We need to review other laws in addition to the 25 laws related to planning so that amendments will be made at the next session and the laws on planning will be implemented in a coordinated manner from January 1st, 2019. This is a positive step forward in enforcing the laws on planning, helping to reform administrative procedures and reduce licensing time’.

Committee members underscored the need to amend planning-related regulations to ensure that they are compatible with the Law on Planning instead of amending regulations related to those laws’ mechanisms and policies./.
