In his closing remarks, the NA chief Vuong Dinh Hue said that at this session, 454 deputies asked questions, bringing to 831 the total number of deputies involved in the Q&A in the first two years of the 15th National Assembly. Q&A is a direct, effective form of legislative oversight.

Four ministers and Deputy Prime Minister Le Minh Khai took the main responsibility for answering. Deputy Prime Ministers Tran Hong Ha and Tran Luu Quang, and a number of other ministers also took part, clarifying issues related to labor, war invalids, society, science and technology, transportation, and ethnicity.

NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue said this Q&A session didn’t waste a minute, adding, “It showed that the questioning satisfied people’s desire for practical answers. The session upheld the spirit of ‘Dedication-Positivity- Responsibility’ of lawmakers, the Government, the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministers, and Ministers.”

Deputy Prime Minister Khai said the Government consistently pursues the goals of stabilizing the macro-economy, controlling inflation, promoting growth, and ensuring major balances of the economy, while attaching importance to welfare policies. He underscored the need to continue removing obstacles to production and trading and facilitating people and businesses.

“It’s necessary to quickly review and immediately handle existing issues, promote decentralization and individualization of responsibilities, and strengthen the role of localities in implementing public investment projects toward reaching a disbursement rate of at least 95% of the plan,” said Mr Khai.

He called for making good use of opportunities to boost rapid and sustainable socio-economic recovery and development in addition to enhancing the mobilization and efficient use of resources.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Khai, job losses were recorded in cities, industrial parks, and key economic areas in the south in the first months of the year. To deal with the situation, the Government has taken measures to help businesses improve their operations and increase employment.

Mr. Khai underscored the need to strictly implement policies on unemployment, and social and health insurance for employees, strengthen the supply-demand connection, and help workers find jobs at local employment exchanges.

“Local administrations and ministries must catch up with trends that affect employment and business and production operations,” the Deputy PM concluded.

Answering deputies’ questions about the global minimum tax, Mr. Khai said a working group will be set up this month to study the impact of the tax. Corporate income tax policies will be propagated in October to meet integration requirements while ensuring national interests and the legal rights and obligations of investors.
