Addressing the opening ceremony, National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue underscored the importance of the session in legislative work, supervision, and decisions on key national issues.
The meeting will be divided into 2 phases with a total duration of 23 working days, with the first lasting from May 22 to June 10, and the second from June 19 to June 23, said Mr. Hue.
According to Mr. Hue, 20 draft laws will be reviewed, discussed, or approved at this meeting, several of which have complex contents and wide impact, directly affecting the rights, obligations, and interests of the majority of people and businesses.
“As a result, lawmakers should discuss them thoroughly, assess their compatibility with the Constitution and the Party's guidelines and policies, and carefully consider the reasonableness, feasibility, and impact of proposed new policies,” said the chief legislator said.
