Civil Code gets NA’'s top at­ten­tion

Viet Nam News - - FRONT PAGE -

HAØ NOÄI — The Na­tional Assem­bly (NA) Stand­ing Com­mit­tee fo­cused on the draft Civil Code, one of the most im­por­tant laws in Vieät Nam’s le­gal frame­work, dur­ing its 31st ses­sion yes­ter­day.

Since it came into force eight years ago, the Code pos­i­tively im­pacted the coun­try’s so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and the pro­tec­tion of the le­gal sys­tem, Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Nguyeãn Xuaân Phuùc said. The re­vi­sion set out to recog­nise the rights of in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions in the civil realm, con­tribut­ing to com­plet­ing the so­cial­ist-ori­ented mar­ket econ­omy reg­u­la­tions and sta­bil­is­ing the le­gal frame­work for the coun­try’s so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.

The cur­rent draft com­prises 672 ar­ti­cles, shorter than the 2009 Civil Code, which con­tains 777 ar­ti­cles. Some were car­ried over di­rectly, while oth­ers were ad­justed or cre­ated.

The NA would dis­cuss feed­back on the bill from Gov­ern­ment agen­cies, le­gal ex­perts, or­gan­i­sa­tions and mem­bers, Phuùc said.

Ad­dress­ing the open­ing event, NA Chair­man Nguyeãn Sinh Huøng urged mem­bers of the com­mit­tee to con­sider the con­tents of the doc­u­ment care­fully so that it could be dis­cussed in de­tail dur­ing the up­com­ing eighth NA meet­ing. He em­pha­sised the need to up­date the Civil Code in ac­cor­dance with the new Con­sti­tu­tion, fo­cus­ing on in­creas­ing cit­i­zens’ rights.

The re­vised law must be of the same high stan­dard as the cur­rent Civil Code and in­clude prac­ti­cal and re­al­is­tic im­ple­men­ta­tion mea­sures, he stated.

Mem­bers of the com­mit­tee also agreed to con­sult the pub­lic in the process of cre­at­ing the fi­nal draft. —
