A northern conference reviewing the government report featuring public feedback on the amended Civil Code took place in Hanoi on April 20.

As of April 15, ministries, agencies and localities had collected hundreds of thousands of opinions on the bill, a majority of which said the revisions have numerous breakthrough points that help realise international commitments on human and citizen rights and improve socialism-oriented market economy regulations and judicial reform.

Others believed that there remain unspecific contents that fail to address daily concerns and called for them to be included in order to provide a better legal framework for the public and authorities.

Participants also expressed their views on regulations regarding activities and local socio-economic development.

The revised Civil Code is divided into 26 chapters with 712 articles.

The conference was hosted by the Ministry of Justice.-VNA
