Calls for tighter control over public assets - National Assembly deputies have agreed on the need for tighter legal controls over public assets.

The remarks were made at the 14th tenure of the National Assembly Standing Committee, which continued its ninth meeting on Thursday morning. The morning discussions focused on further amendments to the draft Law on the Use and Management of Public Assets. The deputies say that liquidation of public assets should be a public, transparent affair, and money collected thus be sent to the state treasury. National Assembly Vice Chairman Phung Quoc Hien said that the draft law must also clearly clarify responsibilities of the government, the prime minister and Ministry of Finance in using and managing public assets.
