According to the NA Office, the NA will hold off on voting on the draft law until the next meeting of the legislative body in May next year so more time will be spent on collecting feedback from voters and experts on the law.

During debates, NA deputies had very different opinions about the bill while people, voters and experts have also shared various views on the issue, said NA General Secretary and Chairman of the NA Office Nguyen Hanh Phuc at a press briefing in Hanoi August 24.

Authorities have studied special economic zones in other countries for reference but there are many different views about it so the NA decided to delay the voting for further research, he noted.

The process of collecting feedback has already been put in place by the Government, Phuc added.

The draft Law on Special Administrative – Economic Units of Van Don, Bac Van Phong and Phu Quoc has been built thoroughly to institutionalise the Party’s resolutions and the Constitution 2013 and create a legal foundation for the construction of the three aforesaid economic zones.

The bill had been deliberated at the fourth sitting of the 14th National Assembly (October 2017).

At the fifth session in May 2018, deputies, scientists, economists, experts and constituents had actively contributed their opinions to the draft law.

On June 11, the NA had agreed to postpone the consideration and adoption of the bill until the sixth session of the parliament later this year, instead of in the fifth session.-
