A workshop held in the central city of Da Nang on July 22 sought ideas to improve the quality of National Assembly (NA) question-and-answer sessions, attracting over 60 delegates from NA Councils and Committees and lawmakers nationwide.

The move comes as the country is putting its new Constitution into practice, the amended Law on NA Organisation is set to take effect and the Law on Supervision of the NA and the People’s Councils is set to be approved, said NA Vice Chairman Huynh Ngoc Son while speaking at the event.

Reviewing the past performance of NA question-and-answer sessions, Son acknowledged that the majority of them were highly constructive, democratic, concise and to the point.

Participants called for increased coordination among NA Committees as well as streamlined procedures guiding and improving supervisory activities.

The workshop, co-hosted by the NA Office and the US Agency for International Development’s Governance for Inclusive Growth programme, will run until July 23.-VNA
