The 10th session of National Assembly (NA) XIII will officially open today, October 20, and wrap up on November 28.

According to Mr. Nguyen Si Dung, Deputy Chairman of the NA Office, the legislature will consider 18 draft laws and four resolutions and submit opinions on eight draft laws.

The NA will take 12 days to discuss the results of the implementation of socio-economic development plans in 2015 and those in place for 2016, the results of State budget collections and spending in 2015, and State budget estimates and allocation plans for the 2016-2020 period.

There will also be changes to its Q&A sessions, according to Mr. Nguyen Hanh Phuc, Chairman of the NA Office. “During questioning, all members of the government, including the Prime Minister, must be present,” he explained. “NA delegates will question members of the government regarding outstanding issues as well as issues of concern.”

The government will also report to the NA on the recently-concluded negotiations over the TPP.

Mr. Phuc said that this tenth session is important in bringing the Constitutional amendment of 2013 into practice; a process partially completed during the eighth and ninth sessions.
