Cabinet members scrutinised eight bills and lawmaking proposals which are among those needing the Government’s consideration by March 1 this year before they are submitted to the National Assembly.
The items under discussion consisted of the draft revised law on road traffic; the draft law on ensuring road traffic order and safety; the draft law on forces taking part in the protection of grassroots security and order; the proposals to amend the law on housing, the law on real estate business, and the law on water resources; a proposal to build a law revising and supplementing some articles of the telecommunications law; and a proposal to build a law on digital technology industry.
Participants looked into the need of those bills and proposals, requesting that the laws to be promulgated must not only serve management but also create a legal corridor for promoting development.
PM Pham Minh Chinh asked ministers and heads of sectors to invest more efforts in the building of institutions, mechanisms, policies, and strategies for the development of their sectors.
Institutional building must be based on the reality, respect the reality, and use the reality to measure its effectiveness, he noted, adding that ministries, sectors, and agencies need to work closely with relevant parties, especially verification bodies, so as to have high-quality proposals for submission.
The Government leader also demanded proper communications to win over support from the public./.
