National Assembly deputies stressed the necessity to continue amending, supplementing and issuing new laws during their discussions on lawmaking in 2015 and 2016 at their 9 th session in Hanoi on May 21.

Head of the NA’s Law Committee, Phan Trung Ly, presented a statement pointing out that five more laws will be added to the NA’s law building and endorsement programme this year, and the plan for 2016 will cover 31 laws, 2 decrees and one resolution.

Deputies concurred that law building is a key task in order to institutionalise the Party’s resolutions and constitutional regulations.

During their morning session, deputies also heard a report on Article 60 of the 2014 Law on Social Insurance, delivered by Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Pham Thi Hai Chuyen.
