 Hanoi (VNA) – Question and answer sessions of the 14th National Assembly’s fourth sitting from November 16-18 took place in a democratic and constructive environment, said NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.

Concluding the sessions on November 18, the top legislator said deputies raised queries on issues relating finance, banking, information, telecommunications and justice, which are of public concern.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and other Cabinet members, and concerned officials committed to overcoming shortcomings and creating positive changes in the time ahead, she said.

She said the NA Standing Committee will draft a resolution on the hearing sessions of the fourth sitting, which is expected to be approved at the end of the meeting to serve as a foundation for the supervision of the implementation of commitments. 

Like the third sitting, the NA devoted an additional half-day to the hearing sessions, giving more time to deputies to question Cabinet members and even discuss with each other about the issues, according to NA General Secretary Nguyen Hanh Phuc.

Of note, the question and answer part of Prime Minister Phuc lasted for two and a half hours, during which the Government leader cleared up issues of public concern.

As many as 23 deputies grilled the PM and four others directly debated with him about public debt management, foreign debt, BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) projects as well as the Government’s policy towards the projects in the time to come, growth-facilitating and e-Government and how to access the fourth industrial revolution. 

The hearing session reflected high consensus and determination of both the legislature and the Government to achieve the common target of sustainable development. -VNA
