HCM City (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang reported on the outcomes of the third session of the 14th National Assembly and made clear issues of concern during a meeting with constituents in districts 1, 3, 4 in Ho Chi Minh City on July 7.

He stated that the Party and State always heed building a transparent and strong apparatus as well as the fight against corruption and wastefulness, citing the Central Steering Committee for Corruption Prevention and Control’s regular meetings and dispatch of inspection teams to localities.

The President underscored the role of leaders in Party committees and agencies in the effort and the need to increase precautionary measures, partly by strengthening inspection and supervision.

About 12 loss-making projects by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Quang reiterated the stance on thoroughly dealing with them and respecting the principle of self-control in businesses. He added that the State will not provide additional capital for them.

Constituent Dang Thanh Binh from district 1 and Nguyen Thi My Hanh from district 4 urged for suspending sand export because sand export prices are lower than those at home, and expressed concern over illegal exploitation of natural resources.

Agreeing with them, the State leader said the government has asked for suspending all sand export and mining contracts in order to thoroughly check illegal projects.

He reaffirmed the Party and State policy of effective exploitation of natural resources in tandem with environment protection.

The President also answered constituents’ queries about child protection law, sidewalk management, pedestrian streets, traffic safety, medicine prices control, and the import of old machinery.-VNA
