Closing the meeting, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said that during the meeting, the NA Standing Committee gave ideas on nine bills and approved a number of resolutions on various issues.

She asked the Government and NA committees, as well as the NA General Secretary and other agencies to absorb opinions given at the meeting in order to complete reports and bills for debate at the NA.

Ngan said that in the next meeting of the NA Standing Committee, scheduled for October 15-17, relevant agencies should send documents to the committee on time to ensure the quality and progress of discussion at the meeting.

Earlier, the NA Standing Committee approved a resolution on an environmental tax list, which aims to raise public awareness of the responsibilities in environmental protection, while encouraging organisations and individuals to use environmentally-friendly products.

The committee agreed with the Government’s proposal on adjusting the environmental tax rate on some products, including fuel. Specifically, the rate for petrol was suggested to increase from 3,000 VND per litre to the ceiling level of 4,000 VND per litre, while that of diesel oil to be raised from 1,500 VND per litre to 2,000 VND per litre, and fuel oil from 900 VND per litre to the ceiling rate of 2,000 VND per litre. The tax rate on kerosene was proposed to be pushed up from 300 VND per litre to 1,000 VND per litre.

The resolution also adjusts the tax rate for products that take a more lasting toll on the environment, such as fossil coal, herbicides, anti-termite chemicals, plastic bags, and restricted antiseptics.

The same day, members of the committee also debated the revised Law on Tax Management.
