Inheriting the results of previous meetings, the NA deputies expressed their dedication, positiveness, mindfulness, and responsibility during the questioning session while clarifying matters of public concern. With their accumulated experience, knowledge and courage, the NA deputies showed their role and responsibility as representatives of the people during working sessions and related activities.

With a very high approval rate, the NA voted to pass seven laws and eight resolutions while discussing and commenting on eight draft laws and many other important issues.

The NA’s 6th session continues to mark success in implementing many reforms and making timely decisions to meet practical requirements. A highlight of this session is a 2.5-day question-and-answer session, questioning the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministers, ministers, and heads of agencies on 21 areas.

The National Assembly passed a resolution on the question-and-answer session, suggesting that the government, prime minister, ministers, and heads of agencies should drastically and effectively handle the issues committed to the NA and the voters nationwide.

In addition, the NA took votes of confidence for 44 officials elected or approved by the NA, which is considered an important method of supervision. The results of the vote of confidence were announced widely and received the approval and appreciation of voters and people from across the country.

The laws commented on and approved by the National Assembly at this session are the legislative tasks identified in the Politburo’s Conclusion No. 19-KL/TW, dated October 14, 2021, on the Lawmaking Programme for the 15th National Assembly as well as Plan No. 81/KH-UBTVQH15, dated November 5, 2021, of the National Assembly Standing Committee.

At this session, the National Assembly considered, commented on, and approved a large number of laws and drafts — more than in the previous sessions. These are laws with important socio-political significance aimed at promptly institutionalising the policies, requirements, and tasks set out in the resolutions of the Party Central Committee and the Politburo, in addition to concretising the regulations of the Constitution and solving urgent problems.

NA deputies thoroughly analysed and discussed major and important issues, especially newly proposed policies, contributing profound opinions for research agencies and promptly institutionalising Party resolutions. Many of the laws and draft laws have complex contents, a wide scope of impact, and direct effects on the rights, obligations, and interests of the majority of people and businesses, thus contributing to perfecting development institutions, creating new motivation, and paving the way for innovation and sustainable development.

The recent NA session also spent time conducting supreme supervision of the implementation of the NA resolutions on national target programmes for building new-styled rural areas in the 2021-2025 period, sustainable poverty reduction in the 2021-2025 period, and socio-economic development in ethnic minority and mountainous areas in the 2021-2030 period. The NA also passed a resolution on the results of thematic supervision, including many important contents and recommendations on improving the progress, efficiency, and quality of national target programmes.

From the success of the eighth session of the 13th Party Central Committee and the 6th session of the 15th NA, it can be affirmed that many important decisions were promptly institutionalised at the year-end session of the 15th NA, affirming the determination of the entire Party, people, and the armed forces to unanimously complete the tasks set out for 2024 and the 5-year plans according to the Resolution of the 13th Party Congress.
