Mr Trong said participants in the conference emphasized the special importance of the amendments to the 1992 Constitution that should be considered in a dialectical and comprehensive way.
Amendment proposals should be based on the revision of the implementation of the 1992 Constitution and other related laws, and a good grasp of the Political Platform on building up the country in the transitional period toward socialism (revised and amended in 2011) and resolution of the 11th National Party Congress.
The Party chief said the amendments should be made in the spirit of the resolution of the 11th Party Central Committee's second meeting, under the sound leadership of the Party.
The amendments should draw in opinions contributed by experts, scientists, managers, and people, laying a scientific foundation for the National Assembly to consider and approve.
Regarding the amendments to the Law on Land, the Party leader emphasized that land is the nation’s most precious resource and special means of production. Therefore, it is an urgent task to study revision of and amendments to the Law on Land to repair the shortcomings of the current law to ensure land use efficiency, environmental protection, national food security, socio-political stability and sustainable development.
