Nguyen Khac Dinh, member of the NA Standing Committee and Chairman of the NA Committee on Legal Affairs, presented a report on outcomes of the supervision of law enforcement in administrative reform over the past decade.

During their discussion, most of the NA deputies applauded the performance of the inspection delegation. 

They said the Government, ministries, agencies and localities have made great efforts to materialise the Party’s guidelines and the State’s laws on administrative reform, contributing to raising the efficiency of State management and spurring national development. 

However, they pointed to the incomprehensive, overlapping and contradictory legal system, along with overlaps in functions and tasks of the Government agencies, as well as limitations in the decentralisation of local authorities and the reduction of public servants. 

The legislators analysed reasons for the shortcomings, focusing on responsibility of agencies and their heads. 

They proposed the Government review relevant legal documents and promptly and effectively effectuate resolutions adopted at the sixth plenum of the 12th Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee on continued renovation and rearrangement of the political system apparatus.   

More attention should be paid to raising the quality of public servants, improving wage and allowance policies, and intensifying decentralisation and supervision of law enforcement, they said. 

They contributed opinions to the NA’s draft resolution on stepping up law enforcement in administrative reform for 2016-2021 and suggested the Government report outcomes of the document implementation to the NA biennially. 

On October 31, the lawmakers are scheduled to mull over the implementation of the socio-economic development plan and State budget in 2017, the socio-economic development plan and State budget estimate and allocation for 2018, and the State finance-budget plan for 2018-2020. 

The working session will be broadcast live on the national television and radio channels, and covered widely by the media.
