HANOI, June 11 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam's National Assembly, the country's top legislature, agreed on Monday not to adopt the draft Law on Special Administrative and Economic Units of Van Don, Bac Van Phong, and Phu Quoc at its ongoing fifth session.
The Government Office on Saturday released an announcement, saying it had asked the National Assembly to delay the approval of the draft law to have more time for research and completion until the next session, Vietnam News Agency reported.
Special cases, that could lease land up to 99 years for production and business in the three special economic zones of Van Don in northern Quang Ninh province, of Bac Van Phong in central Khanh Hoa province, and of Phu Quoc in southern Kien Giang province, will not be regulated in the bill.
The decision was made after the National Assembly and the government took into account many aspects of the issue which caught interests and gathered a lot of ideas from local legislators, people of all walks of life and voters nationwide.
At the ongoing fifth session, legislators, scientists, economists, experts and constituents actively contributed their opinions to the draft law.
