Hanoi (VNA) - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on November 24 stressed the importance of building laws and institutions in order to build a socialist law-governed state

The Government leader made the statement while addressing a conference on law building and enforcement, which was held online with the participation of officials from the country’s 63 cities and provinces. 

He highlighted the responsibility of and coordination between relevant agencies in law building, saying more effort is needed to raise efficiency in law enforcement. 

To ensure the quality of bills, it is necessary to follow the set process, the PM said, adding that laws need to ensure the power of the people.  

He also underlined the requirement that domestic laws must match international laws, considering the country’s intensive international integration and participation in a large number of free trade agreements (FTAs). 

The PM asked the judicial sector to promote its role as the “conductor” in law building and enforcement, and ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies, and chairpersons of provincial People’s Committees to directly instruct law enforcement.

He said the Government has synchronously implemented a law-building strategy in combination with judicial reform, and has made significant achievements in this regard. 

PM Phuc attributed Vietnam’s successes in containing the COVID-19 pandemic and socio-economic development to its legal system, which he described as complete, uniform, transparent and feasible, as well as to the close coordination between the National Assembly and the Government. 

He also pointed out limitations in law building work, however, such as the low quality of certain bills, delay in drafting bills, and ineffective coordination between ministries and agencies in the task.
The Government leader required ministers, heads of ministerial level agencies and chairmen of provincial level People’s Committees to personally direct law building and enforcement work./.
