On 19 August 2016, Minister Le Thanh Long held a working session with the Department of Legal Dissemination and Education on the activities of legal dissemination and education. Deputy Minister Phan Chi Hieu and heads of some units attached to the Ministry attended the working session.

Especially, the Department also focused on dissemination of laws newly adopted by the 13th National Assembly and the Election for the 14th National Assembly and People’s Councils for the 2016-2021 term. Accordingly, the activities of legal dissemination and education have linked to the work of legislative development and law implementation.

In addition, they frankly discussed some proposals in order to improve the effectiveness of the Department’s work in the time to come.

What is more, Deputy Director of the Institute of Legal Sciences Nguyen Van Cuong proposed that the Department should have solutions to promote the role of village regulations and conventions which are closest to the people at grassroots level.
Deputy Minister Phan Chi Hieu affirmed that in the first 8 months of 2016, the Department implemented comprehensively key activities in all aspects under the scope of management of the Department. Moreover, the tasks of the Department were done with the ensuring of the quality and progress according to programs and plans, in which some activities have positive changes and reached high results.
