Can Tho (VNA) – National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan met constituents in Cai Rang and Phong Dien districts, the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on June 27 to inform them about outcomes of the recently-ended third session of the 14th legislature.

Constituents raised more than 30 opinions regarding site clearance and compensation for displaced residents, employment, rural infrastructure, health insurance and vocational training, which were answered by local authorities.

On suggestions about site clearance and compensation, Ngan asked the municipal authorities to protect people’s interests in the spirit of placing their interests above others and in line with the Law on Land while seeking solutions to harmonising interests of parties concerned.

Sharing with concerns over food security in face of site clearance for industrial zone and urban development, she said as part of the agricultural restructuring plan, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has zoned off rice cultivation acreage to ensure national food security. The NA also issued a Resolution to guarantee 3.8 million ha of rice farming.

She also explained regulations on lending for hi-tech production, saying that incentives are provided for projects with outcomes certified by local authorities.

The top legislator also answered questions regarding effective exploitation of Can Tho airport, expansion of international Tan Son Nhat airport, construction of Long Thanh airport, and management of information on the social media.

On the occasion, she also visited and presented gifts to several policy beneficiaries in Can Tho city and Phong Dien district.-VNA
