The National Assembly’s Standing Committee will discuss the NA’s external relations and its programme of international cooperation for 2010 at their 26 th session which convened in Hanoi on December 15.

During their five-day meeting, the country’s top legislators will examine the outcomes of the 12 th Legislature’s sixth meeting, comment on preparations for the forthcoming seventh meeting and discuss the problems that still exist in a number of laws the NA has already looked at.

They will also debate a plan to allocate capital in 2010 in the form of Government bonds, review the management and use of the budget reserved for the NA’s activities in 2009 and then decide on the amount for 2010.

The officials agreed that at its sixth meeting, the NA significantly improved its question-answer sessions by promptly dealing with current pressing problems in society to help voters get a deeper understanding of the responsibilities of government officials.

They asked the NA’s agencies to inspect and appraise their capacity to help the NA conduct its question-answer sessions successfully.

The NA Office spoke about its preparations for the seventh meeting, saying that at least 12 bills and a resolution on the programme for 2011 will also be discussed at the next meeting./.
