Regarding personnel issues, the NA appointed the minister of health, the minister of science and technology, governor of the State Bank of Vietnam and judges of the Supreme People's Court, Tuan added.

The upcoming year of 2021 will have significant meaning as the 13th national congress of the CPV will be held, and it will be the first year for the implementation of the country's 10-year socio-economic development strategy for the 2021-2030 period, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said in her closing speech.

Noting that Vietnam will also encounter several major difficulties and challenges, the NA requested the government, relevant authorities, the business community and the people to exert utmost efforts to fulfill the epidemic control and economic recovery tasks while attaining the targets and completing set plans, in order to create a foundation for a new phase of development, Ngan said.

The NA session was held online from Oct. 20 to 27 before deputies gathered in Hanoi for plenary meetings from Nov. 2 to 17.
