During their eight working days, deputies will focus on examining a report on the National Assembly’s performance in its 12th term from 2007 to 2011, said Tran Dinh Dan, Head of the National Assembly Office at a press briefing in Hanoi on March 17.

The deputies will also hear working reports during the 2007-2011 term by the State President, the Government, the Prime Minister, the Chief Judge of the Supreme People’s Court, and the Procurator of the Supreme People’s Procuracy.

Nguyen Sy Dung, Vice Head of the National Assembly Office, said these reports were due to deal with what had been done, difficulties that still existed, experiences and lessons learnt, along with proposals to help raise the effectiveness of the State’s important institutions.

At the session, deputies will discuss and approve four laws, including the Law on Independent Audit, the Law on Preventing and Combating Human Trafficking, the Law on Supplements and Amendments to some Articles of the Civil Procedure Code, and the Capital Law.

The session’s agenda will include discussions of supplementary reports on the outcomes of the implementation of the country’s socio-economic development plan and the State budget in 2010 and the country’s socio-economic and state budgetary performance in the first months of 2011.

The legislators were due to look at reports on management and use of the social insurance fund, on the enforcement of the law on gender equality in 2010, and on plans to use a sum of VND3.5 trillion  to reinvest in Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group.
