NA agree to postpone adoption of draft law on special economic zones

VGP - The National Assembly has approved a proposal of the NA Standing Committee on postponing the debate and adoption of the draft Law on Special Administrative and Economic Units of Van Don, Bac Van Phong, and Phu Quoc.

June 11, 2018 5:00 PM GMT+7
In the morning meeting of the NA on June 11, 423 deputies, or 85.63%of the NA, voted for the proposal, which suggested the draft law should be considered and adopted at the next session instead of being approved at the closing meeting on June 15 morning. 

According to NA Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu, the building of the draft law on special economic zones is a major policy of the Party and State.

However, this is a new, complicated and controversial issue, so the NA Standing Committee had agreed with the Government to ask the legislature for permission to delay the approval of the bill in order to have more time for studying and completion, Luu said.

After the voting, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan mentioned gatherings in some localities on June 10 with some involving in extremist acts affecting social order and people’s normal life. This showed that issues discussed at the legislature are pervading the society, she said, expressing her regret that some persons did not understand the nature of the matter, hence overreacting. 

The top legislator called on people nationwide to keep calm and trust the Party and State. 

She stressed that the NA always listens to opinions from people about draft laws deliberated at the legislature.

The NA Standing Committee also asked the NA to assign the Government to coordinate with the committee in researching, collecting opinions and revising the draft law along with related draft resolutions and projects.

The Government needs to instruct ministries, departments and localities to tighten land use management in areas designated for the special administrative-economic units, while making preparations of resources and necessary conditions to ensure that the law and related resolutions will be implemented immediately after approval.

At the same time, the NA requested the Government to enhance communication activities to clarify issues of concern of voters and people nationwide to create high public consensus on the draft law. -VNA
