The 15th-tenure National Assembly (NA) commenced its sixth session in Hanoi on Monday to consider and vote on nine draft laws and one draft resolution.

Eight other draft laws will also come under consideration.

The NA will make decisions about several socio-economic issues, including the implementation results of the socio-economic development and state budget plans for 2023, and the socio-economic development, state budget estimation, and central budget allocation plans for 2024. It will also look into the mid-term reports on the implementation of the socio-economic development, medium-term public investment, national finance, and public debt plans for 2021 - 2025.

It will scrutinize reports on judicial affairs and the government's reports on the prevention and control of corruption, crimes, and law violations, along with judgment enforcement in 2023.

Specialized supervision will be conducted over the implementation of the NA’s resolutions on the national target programs on new-style rural area building for 2021 - 2025, sustainable poverty reduction for 2021 - 2025, and socio-economic development in ethnic minority and mountainous areas for 2021 - 2030.
