Parliamentarians from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Canada, France and Germany are attending the event, jointly held by Vietnam’s National Institute for Legislative Studies (NILS) and Germany’s Rosa Luxemburg Foundation.

Based on international experience shared during the conference, Vietnamese delegates are expected to propose suggestions to perfect regulations in the revised draft Law on the Organisation of the National Assembly (NA), which will be submitted to the 13th NA at its upcoming seventh meeting.

The Director of NILS, Dinh Xuan Thao, said that amendments to the draft law will be aligned with the 2013 Constitution.

Within the framework of the conference, delegates will visit Ho Chi Minh City’s office of NA deputies and People’s Council.-VNA
