The new bills deal with denunciation, special administrative and economic units, measurement and maps, competition, cyber security, national defence, physical activity and sports, and planning.

Lawmakers will decide several important issues, and devote 3 days to a Q&A session.

“Law building will continue to be the focus of this session, accounting for two thirds of its total duration. The draft laws to be adopted are important to institutionalize guidelines, resolutions of the Party Central Committee, and the 2013 Constitution to protect human rights, develop and improve the socialist-oriented market economy, national security and defense, and the state apparatus, and strengthen the fight against corruption and waste,” National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said at the opening ceremony.
