Chairman of the National Assembly (NA) Nguyen Sinh Hung paid New Year visits to some state offices and agencies on January 6, the first working day of the Year of the Horse.

Visiting the NA Office, the Supreme People’s Court, the Supreme People’s Procuracy, the Ministry of Justice and the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam, he wished all officials and staff a happy and peaceful year.

He praised the efforts and important contributions of the NA Office’s staff, lauding their good performance in 2013.

In 2014, the office’s greatest task is to promote the implementation of the newly amended Constitution, he said, calling on staff to exert further efforts.

At the Supreme People’s Court, the NA leader spoke highly of the court’s endeavour to handle important cases, contributing to ensuring political security, social safety and order, and creating favourable conditions for the country’s socio-economic development.

He also asked the court to enhance its judgement quality, while improving the competence of its personnel.

Recognising the performance of the Supreme People’s Procuracy in preventing and combating crime, NA Chairman Hung emphasised that 2014 is the first year the new Constitution will be implemented, and that the Supreme People’s Procuracy should focus on building and adjusting relevant legal documents to suit the amended Constitution.-VNA
