Can Tho (VNA) – National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan on April 27 met with voters in some communes in Phong Dien district, the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho and answered their questions in various issues, including environmental protection, food safety, corruption fight, fruit production and traffic accident reduction.

Regarding voters’ queries on corruption prevention and control, the top legislator noted that the NA has amended the Law on Corruption Prevention and Control, while the Party and State have also paid great attention to the work.

Over the past time, several major corruption cases have been brought to light, including the case of Trinh Xuan Thanh and those related to banks.

Competent agencies have been directed to clarify and publicise 12 cases in 2017, she said, affirming the Party and State’s consistent stance of allowing no “safety zone” for corruptors.

About issues related to fake and under-quality commodities, NA Chairwoman Ngan said that NA deputies toughed upon the matter in all socio-economic discussions, while building a supervision programme in the field.

The legislature has also issued a resolution on the matter and assigned the Government to strengthen State management over fake and poor quality commodities, especially in the field of agriculture, she declared.

Answering voters’ questions on measures to support pig breeders suffering lossesdue to falling pork prices, she attributed the situation to poor market forecast for production orientation.

She revealed that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is seeking ways to boost processing, while urging authorised agencies to give more exact market forecasts.

Regarding measures to prevent the use of food additives without clear origin and enhance food safety, the top legislator pledged that in the upcoming third session, the NA will conduct supreme supervision over the issue before releasing a resolution asking ministries and sectors to strengthen supervision and management in the field.-VNA
