Hanoi (VNA) – The National Assembly (NA)’s Standing Committee started its 29th session in Hanoi on December 10.

Opening the session, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said that the committee will give ideas on three major issues – summarising the NA’s sixth plenum and preparations for the seventh; the implementation of legal regulations on policy for members of Vietnamese agencies abroad; and the issuance of a decree on exhibition activities.

The committee will consider and decide six matters, including the adoption of an ordinance on the adjustments and supplementations to some articles of ordinances related to planning, and the passing of regulations guiding the organisation and operation of the People’s Councils.

Members will discuss the amendments to the programme on building laws and ordinances in 2019 and the purchase of additional rice for national reserve as well as the provision of more money to buy animal medicine for stocking.

They will also evaluate the outcomes of the implementation of the committee’s external relations and international cooperation in 2018, while deciding the programme for the activities in 2019, along with the committee’s working plan for 2019.
