Question-and-answer sessions were also conducted, with Minister of Justice Ha Hung Cuong and Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Nguyen Minh Quang answering questions from NA deputies.

At the meeting, deputies discussed the Government’s report on assessing the implementation of the State Treasury’s financial management mechanism and payroll in the 2009-2013 period.
