The National Assembly’s Economic Committee convened the 7 th plenary
meeting, presided over by its Chairman Nguyen Van Giau, in Hanoi on
February 27 to give opinions about the draft amendments to the 1992
Constitution.

Deputies focused their discussions on State economic management, land
reclamation, relations between central and local budgets and State
investment in culture, society, education, science–technology and the
environment.

On the same day in Hanoi , the
Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee also collected opinions
from its members on the draft revised Constitution.

Participants agreed that the revised Constitution reaffirms the
upholding of the great national unity, which according to them,
motivates national construction, defence and development.

Tran Van Ta, President of the Vietnam Association of Certified Public
Accountants said the revised Constitution highlights the mastery rights
of the people and human rights. It also recognises Vietnam as a
socialism-oriented market economy with various forms of ownership and
economic sectors that leans towards long-term development, cooperation,
equality and competition in line with the law.

It
marked the first time that the Constitution has issued regulations on
environmental protection and sustainable development as well as
mechanisms on three independent constitutional institutions, namely the
Constitutional Council, the National Election Council and the State
Audit Office of Vietnam.

They contributed their
ideas to the role and position of the VFF, the State apparatus and
power, social welfare and incentives to those who rendered services to
the country, and youth training.

Meanwhile, in a
working session with the Yen Bai provincial People’s Council, Justice
Minister Ha Hung Cuong stressed the need to collect farmers and ethnic
minorities’ feedback on the revised Constitution.

Cuong asked the provincial Fatherland Front to continue raising public
awareness of this activity, therefore forging a high consensus to build a
law-governed State in a new situation.-VNA
