They will mull over the implementation of the socio-economic development and State budget plans during the first six months and tasks in the latter half of this year to fulfill yearly plans; the socio-economic development plan for 2021 - 2025, which includes the intensification of the COVID-19 fight; and investment policy for the national target programmes on sustainable poverty reduction and new-style rural area building for 2021 - 2025.

Other issues on the working programme in the coming days cover the financial plan, the public borrowing and debt repayment plan, and the medium-term public investment plan for 2021 - 2025; the approval of the 2019 State budget balance; and the thrift practice and wastefulness prevention in 2020.

The 15th legislature is also scheduled to vote on a number of important resolutions during the final working days of its first session, with the closing ceremony set to come to an end on July 28.
