Speaking at session, Prime Minister Phúc expressed his support for most of the proposals and accepted the pilot implementation of the new regulations.

"Ho Chi Minh City has more than 10 million people. It can’t apply same mechanism as other localities. I agree with the proposals the city submitted. There should be pilot plan for their implementation based on existing law." - Prime Minister NGUYEN XUAN PHUC
