Hanoi (VNA) –
Lawmakers will vote to pass the draft revised Law on National Defence and draft Law on Vietnam Coast Guard at the ongoing fifth session of the 14th National Assembly in Hanoi on June 8 morning.

The Law on National Defence provides for national defense policies and principles, basic defense activities, tasks and powers of agencies and organisations, rights and obligations of citizens on national defense.

Meanwhile, the Law on Vietnam Coast Guard aims to institutionalise the Party’s policies, guidelines and regulations relating to the Constitution 2013 on enhancing the country’s defence-security strength and creating a legal foundation for the operation of the Vietnamese coast guard force.

In the afternoon, legislators will cast their votes to approve a draft programme on law and ordinance building for 2019 and adjustments to the law and ordinance building programme for 2018.

They are set to discuss the draft Law on Cultivation which looks to create large-scale production with high quality, ensure sustainable development and food security, improve incomes for farmers and support them to adapt to climate change and integrate into international economy.-VNA
