Great national solidarity significant for Vietnam to overcome difficulties: NA leader

Vietnam is facing new and greater difficulties and challenges, requiring the country to promote the tradition of great national solidarity to overcome this tough time, stated National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue at the opening of the 15th NA’s second session in Hanoi on October 20.

The event was held in the form of video conference with connection to 62 NA deputy delegations in localities nationwide.

The NA leader noted that the fourth wave of Covid-19 has posed severe impacts on many sectors, seriously affecting production and business activities as well as the livelihoods and living conditions of people.

With a minus 6.17% year on year economic growth in the third quarter, the country’s economy expanded only 1.42% in the first nine months of this year, the lowest level since 200, he said, adding that economic growth for the whole year is likely to reach only 2.5-3%, far below the target set by the NA at about 6%.

Thanks to the solidarity of the whole nation, social consensus and the active engagement of the entire political system as well as the support and trust of the people and assistance from the Vietnamese community abroad and international friends, Covid-19 has been put under control across the nation, he said.

Meanwhile, the macro-economy has remained stable, and the agricultural sector has recorded strong growth and continued to be the backbone of the economy and social stability, said the NA leader.

He underlined that exports have surged over the same period last year, while inflation has been reigned in, State budget collection and major balances of the economy have been ensured, social welfare and security have received great attention, and national defence, security and social order have been maintained.

The top legislator briefed on the working programme of the second session, with two laws and five resolutions to be adopted, and five other bills along with the Government’s reports on a series of important issues to be tabled for discussion. Question-and-answer sessions will also be held.

The NA leader asked all legislators to show high sense of responsibility in the debate, speaking out voters’ opinions and deciding important matters.

Following the opening ceremony, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh delivered a report on the results of the socio-economic development plan for 2021 and a draft plan for 2022.
