In his opening remarks, NA Chairman Trần Thanh Mẫn said during the three-day meeting, full-time legislators will opine on eight draft laws and three draft resolutions to be submitted and approved at the second phase of the legislature’s seventh meeting from June 17-27.

The draft resolutions cover the pilot supplementation of some specific mechanisms and policies for the development of the central province of Nghệ An, urban administration and the pilot implementation of some specific mechanisms and policies for the central city of Đà Nẵng, and the National Marine Spatial Planning for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2050.

The session will also scrutinise the draft law amending four laws regarding land, housing, real estate business and credit institutions, and the draft resolution on the reduction of value-added tax which have been included in the 2024 law and ordinance building programme.

The legislators will decide on the resolution on job positions within the NA Standing Committee organs, and the use of increased revenue and budget savings in 2023.

Beyond legal matters, the committee will delve into the Hà Nội Capital Planning for 2021-2030, with a vision to 2050, and adjustments to the General Planning of Hà Nội Capital to 2045, with a vision to 2065.
