NDO – The National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee concluded its 43rd session in Hanoi on March 25.

During the session, the NASC listened to Deputy PM Vu Duc Dam present a report on the Covid-19 epidemic situation with solutions and plans to prevent and combat the epidemic in Vietnam, as well as looking into and commenting on a number of draft laws on which there remain different views.

Speaking at the closing session, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan emphasised the need to step up application of information technology in management and online public services, and the limiting of meetings of big crowds in the face of the Covid-19 outbreak.

In that spirit, the NASC is scheduled to hold a teleconference of NA full-time deputies from April 6-8, she said, urging relevant agencies to send documents of the five draft laws, to be discussed during the teleconference, to the legislators for study.

Regarding the 44th session of the committee, NA Chairwoman Ngan said the committee will decide the concrete date for the meeting based on the developments of the epidemic in early April.

The session is projected to look into various issues, the top legislator said, asking NA agencies to closely coordinate with their government counterparts in theirpreparations, making it easier for the committee to finalise the agenda.

She also underscored that in the context of the complicated developments of the pandemic, it is a must to observe the legal regulations and instructions of the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control, the Government and the Prime Minister, as well as the recommendations of the health sector.
