Cabinet members gave opinions to reports on the revised draft law on public investment; the draft law on entry and exit of Vietnamese citizens; and the draft law on the amendment and supplement of the law on the organisation of the Government and the law on the organisation of local administration. The draft law on revising and supplementing the Law on Cadres and Civil Servants and the Law on Public Employees was also discussed. Speaking at the session, PM Phuc said the government has prioritised institutional building, but the work still sees shortcomings that require more attention from ministers and better human resources. He highlighted the Ministry of Justice’s responsibility in verifying draft laws and legal documents, noting that it must point out shortcomings and irrationalities in these documents before they are submitted. Concurring with cabinet members, PM Phuc said the draft law on public investment should regulate the decentralisation to permanent members of the People’s Councils in deciding upon a number of projects and investment portfolios during the period when no session of the councils takes place. This will speed up the progress of these projects, he elaborated. The implementation of the resolution on the enforcement of the planning law was also tabled at the meeting.
