| NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan chairs a NA Standing Committee meeting in Hanoi on October 15, 2019.
Lawmakers hailed achievements in socio-economic development, security, external affairs, fiscal and monetary management.
"Our target for 2020 is to stabilize the macro economy amid complicated global developments. Trade protectionism and trade and geopolitical disputes between world powers have negatively impacted Vietnam’s imports, exports, and production. We need to take advantage of free trade agreements and actively respond to opportunities and challenges while integrating into the global economy," Chairwoman Ngan said.
