The National Assembly considered the Draft Environmental Protection Act (amended)
On the afternoon of November 6, the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Nguyen Minh Quang, authorized by the Prime Minister presented the project report on the Environmental Protection Act (amended).
The project report on Environmental Protection Law (Amendment ) evaluated a number of provisions on environmental protection that remain appropriate, unrealistic, stagnated, out of touch with the development requirements of practical and international integration and overlapping with other legal provisions. Besides, there have surfaced inconsistencies in the provisions on environmental protection with other laws related to environmental protection. The above reasons have reduced the effectiveness and efficiency of environmental protection management. Thus, the amendment is urgently needed in order to firmly rejected polluted projects that affect public health .
