Vietnam looks to call end to coronavirus as Assembly nears

Hanoi to lure post-virus business by amending enterprise and investment laws

HANOI -- Vietnam's first session of the 2020 National Assembly starts on Wednesday, with the legislative body formed in 1946 to hold online meetings for the first time ever to limit the risk of a new outbreak of the coronavirus.

The country's constitution stipulates the Assembly is the highest organ of state power. The legislative session, which is scheduled to conclude on June 18, comes as the communist-led country emerges from the pandemic. It essentially lifted all restrictions on May 8 after becoming the first Southeast Asian nation to bring the number of new cases in the community to zero.
