The conference reviewed that over the past 15 months the Compilation Board strictly followed the programs and plans of the National Assembly, the Government, and the Ministry of National Defense. The efforts of the members of the board have been highly praised by the Government, the National Assembly, the Ministry of Justice, agencies, and localities. The law’s contents comprehensively institutionalize the guidelines of the Party on building, managing, and protecting national borders and building the border guard force. They are in line with the Vietnam legal system and international treaties to which Vietnam is a party.

The plan will then be submitted to the prime minister for approval.
