Economic restructuring was high on the agenda at the ongoing eighth session of the 13th National Assembly (NA) on November 1.

During the plenary meeting, Chairman of the NA’s Committee for Economic Affairs Nguyen Van Giau presented a report on the supervision of the economic restructuring process, which is part of the NA’s Resolution No.10/2011/QH13 on the socio-economic development plan for 2011 to 2015.

NA representatives provided in-depth opinions on the implementation of policies and laws on the economic restructuring of public investment, State-owned enterprises and the banking system.

They reviewed the outcomes of economic restructuring over the last three years and highlighted a number of weaknesses, as well as their causes.

A number of proposals were put forward with the aim of accelerating economic restructuring between now and the end of 2015, with a focus of effectiveness.
