Most of the draft decrees have been sent to ministries, sectors, and local authorities for comments. Some of them have been sent to the Ministry of Justice for legal appraisal.

Speaking at the meeting, Minister To Lam asked the under-ministerial agencies which are assigned to draft the laws and decrees to gather and consider comments on the draft laws and decrees by relevant ministries, Central-level agencies, and branches, then finalize the draft laws and decrees and submit them to the competent authorities for further review or promulgation as scheduled.

Minister Lam also emphasized the importance of popularizing the laws and decrees being drafted by the MPS.

He asked the Department of Legal Affairs and Administrative, Judicial Reforms and relevant under-ministerial units to coordinate with press and media agencies inside and outside the Public Security Forces to publish the contents of the draft laws and decrees in order that all people can know and contribute to them, and that they can receive much support from people, politico-social organizations, and the National Assembly.
