At the meeting of the NASC held on the morning of August 10, the NA Chairwoman Ngan emphasized the need to reduce procedures relating to household registration books, with this policy being one of the major contents of the revised draft Law on Residence.
It can be considered necessary to review the current law provisions, especially with regard to circulars, decrees alongside administrative procedures related to transactions, contracts, and services that require a household registration book. Therefore, prompt abolishment, amendments, and supplements should be made for the Law to enter into force.
The NASC also assigned the Committee for Legal Affairs, the Ministry of Public Security, and other relevant agencies to continue completing the draft law to be submitted to the National Assembly for consideration and approval during an end of year meeting, the NA leader said.
With regard to developing laws, NASC members are set to consider and comment on a range of issues in the draft revised law on residency, the draft law on amendments, and supplements to several articles of the law relating to handling administrative violations, laws on Vietnamese border guards, and a revised version of the draft on environmental protection.

During the session, members will also scrutinise and give opinions on amendments and supplements to several articles relating to the law on HIV/AIDS prevention and control, in addition to the draft revised ordinance on preferential treatment for revolutionary contributors.
The committee will also consider the issuance of a decree relating to the management and use of land for purposes of national defence in economic production and construction by the military.
Other issues to be raised for discussion include the development strategy for State audit until 2030, along with a report on the three-year implementation of a NA resolution on dealing with bad debts from credit institutions.
