Hanoi (VNA) Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has urged the National Assembly to further uphold its role and position in creating a legal framework for the country’s activities.

In his keynote speech at the opening of the 15th NA’s first session in Hanoi on July 20, Trong asked the legislature to speed up the issuance and improve the quality of legal documents, soon build a legal system to meet demand in reality, and build and supplement laws in key areas that make breakthroughs in socio-economic development.
The NA needs to continue renewing and further improving operation quality and efficiency to meet the country’s requirements and political tasks in the new period, he said, adding that to such end, it is necessary to fully understand the role, position and responsibility of the legislature in the nation’s political system led by the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), as well as promptly institutionalise the Party’s policies and guidelines to meet demand in reality and public expectations.

The legislature also needs to step up external activities, active and proactive global integration, contributing to performing the Party and State’s foreign policy of multilateralisation and diversification of relations.

The Party chief stressed that achievements made by the NA over the past 75 years are the result of the sound leadership of the CPV - a decisive factor for the legislature to fulfill tasks entrusted by the people.

In the immediate future, he called for institutionalising and concretising important policies affirmed at the 13th National Party Congress, ensuring the quality of the 15th NA’s activities to meet the requirements and tasks of the revolution and the people's expectations in the new period.

He expressed his belief that under the CPV’s leadership and with efforts and determination of NA deputies, close collaboration among units in the political system, support and supervision of the public, and cooperation and assistance of international friends, the Vietnamese legislature will reap important outcomes, thus deserving the highest representative organ of the people and the highest organ of State power of the country./.
