results in legislative activities, including the guarantee and protection of

continuously reform economic institutions.
Additionally, law on education-training,
science-technology, health, culture and information, sports, religion,
population, family, children, and social policies have been developed
comprehensively to better serve the demands of people and ensure compatibility
with international law.
Law on national defense-security, social order and
safety have also been constantly improved, while those on international
integration has been intensified to facilitate the signing of and participation
in international treaties and judicial assistance activities as well as create a
mechanism to ensure the implementation of Vietnam’s international commitments on
the basic principal of defending national interests.

important international treaties under its ratification authority related to
national sovereignty, borders and territories, and the participation in
important international organisations such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO)
and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).
To promote these achievements, the National Assembly
will spare no effort to constantly reform in both organisation and operation,
