Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan asked the Government, NA committees and relevant agencies to collect feedbacks to refine five draft laws and one draft resolution for submission to the NA Standing Committee at its session in April 2019, as well as to complete four draft resolutions for signing.

The Chairwoman noted that the upcoming session from April 10-19 will discuss a number of contents and as such the collection of feedback on several draft laws is very urgent. 

On the same day, the NA Standing Committee gave opinions on the draft resolution on the settlement of tax arrears and fine payments. 

In accordance with the Law on Tax Management and documents on amendments and supplements to it, the Ministry of Finance set up units in charge of tax arrears management and coercion from the central to local levels. 

The collection of tax arrears has increased over the years, reaching 81% of the total from 2011-2017. The ratio of debt to domestic state revenue fell from 12.2% in 2014 to 7.6% in 2017, and down to 7% in 2018. 

As of December 31, 2017, total tax arrears topped VND 78.47 trillion (US$3.4 billion), down 2.8% from the previous year. 

In addition, the NA Standing Committee also adopted a resolution regulating the military ranks of lieutenant general and major general, which have yet to be set specifically in the 2018 Law on People’s Public Security Forces./.
