Adopted bills should be quickly translated into reality, says NA Chairman

VOV.VN - National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue on June 16 requested the Government, ministries, agencies and localities to quickly materialise bills and resolutions adopted at the third session of the legislature to ensure their efficiency.

Addressing the closing ceremony of the three-week long session in Hanoi, Hue noted that the legislature passed five bills and three resolutions, including those on intellectual property rights, insurance market development, cinematography development, and mobile police development.

The adoption of these legal documents will contribute to timely institutionalizing the Party’s guidelines, concretizing the 2013 Constitution, and guaranteeing the implementation of international commitments, he stressed.

The NA also gave opinions on six other bills on domestic violence prevention, medical examination and treatment, grassroots-level democracy practice, inspection, radio frequency and oil and gas.

Among other things, lawmakers approved two resolutions on investment plans for Hanoi’s Ring Road 4 project and Ho Chi Minh City’s Ring Road 3 project, with a total investment capital of more than VND160 trillion.

Notably, Hue said lawmakers spent much time examining the results of the implementation of socio-economic development and budgetary tasks in 2021, and initial months of 2022.

Despite global complications, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vietnamese economy has kept up and running, with GDP expanding 5.03% in the first quarter of 2022.

The total import-export turnover in the first five months reached more than US$305 billion, a year-on-year rise of 16.1%, while the economy continued to enjoy a trade surplus. Five-month State budget revenue met more than 57% of the yearly estimate, up 18.7%.

The fight against corruption and negativity was promoted, while violations in the financial markets were identified and redressed.

In addition, Hue said Vietnam was elected Vice President of the United Nations General Assembly for 2022-2023, representing the Asia-Pacific region. The 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) was successfully held in May, helping elevate Vietnam’s position and role.

The NA also frankly pointed out weaknesses in various sectors, made in-depth analysis of causes, drew lessons from experience, and produced forecasts about opportunities and challenges, especially difficulties that may arise from complicated developments in the world geopolitical landscape.

Hue requested that the Government, ministries, sectors and localities continue to make a greater effort to overcome all difficulties and challenges, quickly restore and develop the economy, and maintain social security in the post-pandemic period.
